  • Tihonovu visited the Holy desert. The monastery was restored. All extraordinarily obihoženo and temples in the area. There are scarves and skirts and even pants for men. Candles for donations. The name justifies-very quiet. .. Very many extraordinary vegetation. Came the cherry and plum. Nuts of lactic ripeness. Want longer sit on benches. Highly recommend to visit.

  • Svyato-Uspenskaya tikhonova pustyn, is definitely one of the religious shrines of Kaluga land. Was founded back in 15 century Tikhon Medynskim, 17 km from Kaluga. According to legend, came to these places Tikhon settled in a hollow oak tree, ate grass, roots and fruits, dug himself well. One day while wandering in the Woods, he met the Prince of Serpukhov, Borovsk and Basil Yaroslavovich, who got angry at the elder and wanted him to hit, but his hand is numb, after which the Prince fell to his knees and began to ask forgiveness. Naturally, Tikhon has forgiven all the Prince, but the Prince has since radically changed its attitude toward God, allocated funds for the construction of a large monastery. Soon died, but his Tikhon strength continued to work wonders. After his death, during the reign of Ivan the terrible, Tikhon recognized Saints and canonized. At the moment, the relics of St. Tikhon is the main shrine of the monastery.

  • Sunday services begin with 9:30, we arrived early, but the temple was opened, we sat on a bench in the complete darkness, warming up and inhaled the atmosphere of peace and tranquillity. Parishioners were going slowly, but to confession the Church was full, mainly with local residents. Bus from Kaluga scheduled quite often, but from the large intersection, where giant letters spelled "Kaluga", it is possible in good weather for a half-hour walk along the route. Places around beautiful, pine forest, mixed forest. In the monastery there are everything for pilgrims: a hotel, two cafes with convent pastries, icon, toilet stalls, benches and a refectory.
