  • Was on the same night in Moscow, the only service on a regular basis: every Saturday on Athos compound vigil begins at 22:30 and without interruption into the liturgy ends in the seventh hour of the morning. Yes, the idea is good but the execution just awful. After awhile people starts to natural sleep and snore: leans on all corners covered jackets ... Sleep on a window sill, on the floor, burying a person's legs on the benches. One man slept lying on the side chapel of the Solea, kicking to the altar. Someone with boredom discusses news. Yes, with phones all strictly: hang inscriptions banning even introduce them into the temple. But cell phones be no ban, but sleep in the temple: 74 rule VI of the Ecumenical Council "should not be in the field, dedicated to the Lord, or in churches <...> lodge postilati. This same derzajushhie appeals, or Yes or Yes prestanut will be repaid.

  • Church is metochion of the Monastery Pantelejmonova in Moscow. The Church was built in the late 16th century on a hill in the suburb behind the river Yauza River, where in those days lived and worked the potters and blacksmiths. The Church has a lovely fenced area. Peace and quiet reign, though it is located in the heart of bustling Moscow. In the Temple of stored particles of relics of Saints. A beautiful bell tower and tented outdoor Gallery-open arcade. There are pretty strict inscriptions about decent clothing, makeup, use of mobile phones.

In the temple are several Orthodox shrines and the miraculous icon of the mother of God "quick to hearken" autographed by Reverend Aristoklija. There are wonderful Icons with the relics of the Martyr Pantaleon, St Andrew the apostle. In the temple provide Athonite rite, many chants in Greek. Very strict orders. Should women come in long skirts.
