  • Had the privilege of traveling to Kostroma to join a place where a new era in the history of Russia. Ipatyevsky monastery. Cradle of the House of Romanov. Monastery for the first time in the Chronicles mentioned in 1432, the monastery on the banks of the River in Kostroma, not far from the confluence of its Volga. Unfortunately (while the monastery and acting) gives no sense of Holiness. Rather tourist Mecca. Architecture, of course ... the walls, many newlyweds. Think for visits is required. Just don't forget the acting and to observe appropriate dress code Although for women there are shawls and skirts at vhodeNa is presented by Bell, uncle Boris Godunov monastery. In the year 1839 on the monastery square was given a commemorative pillar in memory of famous events and people who have left a trace in the history of the Ipatiev's monastyrjaV Holy Trinity Church is an heirloom. icon of the mother of God of Tikhvin Miraculous. By the way is not far away lies the Museum of wooden architecture "Kostromskaya Sloboda"

  • Walking to the monastery, there is a feeling that you are in the holy place (except for the main temple), but on the territory of the Museum. the territory of the monastery. For several years, the Government allocated the money restored, it seems that all-new. Almost every church ware exhibition building/clothes/icons, etc.

  • The current monastery was founded in the year 1330 allegedly fled from the Golden Horde to Ivan Kalita Tatar murzoju who converted to Christianity and recovered from the disease, thanks to the miracle founded a monastery. Originally the Church of the Holy Trinity was built. In this temple of 14 March 1613 year Rite has been committed to the realm of the callings of Mikhail Romanov, ending the Distemper time in Russia's history, which began after the death of Tsarevich Dmitry in Uglich in 1591 year. Fatal that Ipatiev monastery Romanov Dynasty began and in the Ipatiev House in Ekaterinburg execution family ended. In this monastery was discovered "the Ipatiev Chronicle"-list at 307 sheets of ancient Russian history 10-15 century. During the arrival of Catherine II in the monastery building front gate in the Baroque style, decorated with her monogram. TIPS: Climbing the steep stairs of the belfry, you find yourself in a shop where peddling monastery honey and Morse-worth a try. Opposite the monastery with all sorts of products made from flax-worth hear exciting gizmos come across. And here is the famous Kostroma cheese here is more expensive than in the city and little choice.
