Presenting all these buildings looked 5-6 centuries ago, it is impossible not to admire how sweated all the details of the monarchs and how exactly was chosen for the construction of the monastery!

Baranovsky. The monastery was founded by Metropolitan Alexis, in memory of the miraculous salvation to Constantinople. A small stream, which flows into the power struggle, called the Golden Horn, nowadays it is enclosed in a tube. The Church remembers St. Sergius of Radonezh, his beloved disciple, andronic, was Abbot of the monastery. In the southern part of the wall surrounding the monastery, is preserved fragment of the wall of the old monastery, not burnt in the fire of 1812 onwards.
