  • Visited the monastery on Palm Sunday-there were a lot of people. Our goal was an old necropolis on the monastery grounds and sculpture in the old cathedral of Christ the Savior. Necropolis of impressive quantity and condition of the graves even times of Tsarist Russia. And, of course, high reliefs authorship A.v. Loganovskogo stunning!

  • Ancient monastery founded in the late sixteenth century. In the beginning there was erected the Don Cathedral (named Donskoy icon of the mother of God). Over time, this structure will be called small or Old. At the end of the seventeenth century built a new building next door. The building turned out quite large and elegant. The monastery walls with towers, resemble intricate wall of the Novodevichy Convent. Still in the territory are: Church, three-tiered Bell Tower, the crypt kind Golitsyn and other less significant building. There is also a known Donskoye cemetery, where lie many famous people. Donskoy monastery is sometimes referred to as "architectural cemetery".

  • The ancient monastery. Old churchyard, at which many famous people were buried there, including a. Solzhenitsyn. The wall of the monastery with bas-reliefs of the destroyed Cathedral of Christ the Savior. A nice quiet place.

  • Summer is a great place to listen to the silence. One of the few places with a large territory and without cars on it.
