  • The oldest monastery in contemporary Russia. For several years, recovered and transformed. Saw it in different years. Now very nicely. Built and repaired many chapels. The Red Chapel to the left of the entrance, and there are incredible water bath-you can swim. In the gate Chapel of St. Sergius of Radonezhskgoo, that looks at the Cmo can try yourself as a ringer. The truth is there's no bells and metal plates and hammers. But sound wonderful! Children wonder. In the Central upper Church of the miraculous icon "quick to hearken". In the lower Church of the sculptural image of Ilya Muromets with particle of the relics in the finger. In the evening, the temples are illuminated. Probably from the promenade is very beautiful. Saw excursion groups, which led monks. Perhaps it is the Pilgrim group. It would be interesting to listen to. Although when entering large posters that briefly tells the story of the monastery. Think summer more fun. There is a House, but now only hiked pheasants.

  • St. Elijah of Murom lies with a sword in the open cancer. Its dimensions are truly staggering. Ask him the strength and courage to do good deeds!
