  • The monastery was founded in 1397 by Prince Vasily i. 26 August 1395 year procession, headed by Bishop Cyprian, met at the Kuchkovom field of the miraculous image of the Vladimir icon of the mother of God, prinesjonyj of Vladimir-on-Kliazma. A day later, Timur-Tamerlane, osazhdavshij city, without any reasons, withdrew the siege and turned South. Moscow was saved. In memory of the deliverance from invasion on site presentation (meeting) of the wonder-working image of the Virgin was founded by the sretensky monastery. And now, more than six hundred years every day come here to pray, confess, partake of the Holy Mysteries of Christ all sorts of people, rich and poor, famous or not. Church of the presentation one for all.

  • The Moscow Sretensky Stavropegial monastery, located in the heart of Moscow (entrance from b. Lubyanka) produced an ambiguous impression. Something very (ancient temple Candlemas), something not liked at all (lots of okolocerkovnaja activities and a series of mysterious buildings-novodelov on site and nearby). Ends here and the construction of a huge new "Church on the blood" in honor of the Russian new martyrs who will belomramorno loom over all the surrounding historic, low area and the monastery. Why all this is happening precisely in this place and why do I need a new shrine-everyone can easily find the information and read all there is a simple explanation. I would recommend to visit this place purely for the sake of the temple Candlemas, which really deserves attention. It should be noted that until the year 1918 sretensky monastery wore low non civic status "(i.e. existed exclusively on own funds), and now proudly carries the name" stavropigial'nogo ", and, therefore, enjoys all the benefits of being.

  • Sretensky monastery is located on the Great Lubyanka in Moscow. Beautiful temple and a great place for solitude and prayer. Summer is especially beautiful when surrounded by greenery. Now the construction of another temple on the territory.

  • Best Orthodox website for news and articles
  • Unfortunately, the monastery of little interest. For two reasons:-the territory very closely. There is no convenient spots for photography. Plus built in quite cramped conditions, a large temple. -high degree of closeness. Most of the just closed for passage. I.e. nevocerkovlennogo guest from the Street site is not interesting.
