  • I believe that the monastery is worth a visit not only to worship God, but also to experience the historical spirit of the ancient Rus, as it was founded, according to legend, the Moscow Prince Daniil, youngest son of Alexander Nevsky in 1282 year and was a fortified monastery, serving to protect Moscow on the approaches from the South. The walls of this monastery have survived the invasion of Khan Giray, the troubled times of the year 1610 and no less troubled times of Soviet power. With the arrival of the Communists, the monastery was closed and in 1929 year in its territory was organized by the receiver-allocator of the NKVD for children of repressed parents. And only in 1983 year the monastery was returned to the Russian Orthodox Church. At the same time began to be carried out restoration works and the construction of new buildings. Be sure to visit the Danilov monastery! You can see the Temple of the Holy fathers of the seven ecumenical councils, troitsky Cathedral, the church tower of St. Simeon Stylites, rest rooms. And here is the residence of the Patriarch and the Holy Synod of the Church of all saints. So come and explore this new!

  • The oldest, the first Moscow monastery, founded in Moscow in the year 1282. According to another version, its foundation happened later, in 1298-1300 Gg. Then the first Moscow monastery is the Epiphany near the Kremlin to kitai-Gorod, founded by Prince Daniel of the year 1296. The birth of the monastery is surrounded by many legends and true stories. The monastery has survived everything and the rise and ruin. You must visit here.

  • Try to visit every visit to Moscow. An extraordinary place. Nicely, calmly. Several temples. From shrines here are: the relics of the blessed Prince Daniel of Moscow, "Moscow's master" shoe of St. Spiridon Trimifundskogo (shoe there is a popular belief: Saint Spyridon to this day walks, helping people, whether he has a prayer assistance. Once a year the relics of the Saint are extracted from crabs, and find his shoes worn out soles. Replace new shoes. A well-worn shoes pass in temples for worship. Another such shoe is in the Cathedral of Voronezh. At first she just lay under glass, a few years later, it is even difficult to see due to the large amount of jewelry that brings believers in thanks for assistance through the prayers of St. Peter. St. Spiridon pray with loss of jobs, housing and material difficulties. Usually help doesn't make itself waiting long.) In the temple, in which the entrance is located behind the gates of the monastery.

  • Founded in 1560 year on the spot where, according to legend, there was a Monastery founded at the turn of the 13th and 14th centuries the Moscow Prince Daniil, youngest son of Prince Alexander Nevsky. In XVI-XVII centuries belonged to the zone fortified monasteries that protected the approaches to Moscow from the South. In 1920-ies of the monastery was the center of the so-called "danilovskaya opposition — informal conservative opposition to Metropolitan Sergius, headed by Bishop of Volokolamsk Fyodor (Pozdeevskim) [1] [2]. Resurrected in 1983 as a stavropegial and since then became the spiritual and administrative centre of the Russian Orthodox Church: its territory is the building of the Department for external church relations (DECR), as well as the residence of the Synod, where meeting of the Holy Synod.

  • Without faith in God, there's nothing to do. But for the believer, the House of God. This monastery with its rules and statute. So one must observe. Also on the territory of the Monastery sold dairy products with a farmstead, Friday to Sunday. Also use this service. As in Moscow, buy organic foods difficult. Beautiful historic place.
