  • It combines the spirit of the times and the silence, peace. A lot of the facts of history took place in it as interesting and informative to find out by visiting the monastery. Beautiful, quiet place, special experience was the main temple-unique atmosphere, felt like crying. ... a delightful place!

  • Monastery in the western part of Kostroma on the Bank of the Volga River. Very beautiful! A very large and varied exhibition of icons. For the believers will be very interesting to visit.
