  • To just get enough pokrovskyi monastery. You need to get off at the station Marksistskaya Taganskaya Street and go on foot, approximately 15 minutes or on any transport. If you do not bring flowers, then you can buy them on the road. Remember that Matronushke bear an odd number of flowers as lively and ask her in a whisper. At the entrance to the monastery, you will be asked to pass through a metal detector and dosmotrjat personal belongings (bags, packages, etc.). On the territory of the reigns of appeasement and grace. The Matrone worth two queues, the relics and icon. Flowers can be left in the temple, where the relics Matrons. At the exit you will give the flower to be dry and save. Also on the territory of the monastery you can buy a bottle for holy water and candles and have a snack in the monastic meal.

  • Why can't I take pictures at the monastery? This secret facility? Security guards more than in the Kremlin! In the rest of the wonderful monastery. Beautiful wall, well-groomed territory.

  • The monastery was founded in 17 century on the site of the cemetery of the homeless. In the 18 century built church and Bell Tower. In 1994 year, Pokrovsky monastery was returned to the Russian Orthodox Church as the women's cloister. May 2, 1998 year the relics of the blessed old women Matrons were solemnly transferred to the Pokrovsky monastery and repose in cancer. Look at the monastery territory there. But I think basically people come to venerate the relics of St. Matrona. There is a hotel for visiting. It is possible to reach by bus, trolley, but you can walk from the Metro station Proletarskaya (Peasant outpost).
