  • Visited the monastery in the month of October, despite cloudy weather, the monastery is very good at any time of the year. The place is quiet, calm state of tranquility and peacefulness. The day was a weekday and people had very little. The right of the entrance in the territory you can eat very delicious cakes with tea. The monastery is in very good condition, recently renovated, the territory of well-groomed. Despite the October month still bloomed roses. It is with great pleasure that I took a walk through the territory came into the shrine put candles. A terrific place to have a rest soul!

  • The monastery can be accessed in two ways. First: climb on asphalt road underneath. Second: go down on top of the car and stand up to the parking lot near the entrance. What dearer-see for yourself:) If you came by foot, yes even on hot summer days, right after the entrance there is a wonderful place where you can buy homemade soft drinks and sit in the cool. A couple of words about the history of the monastery. It was founded in the early 14th century, a monk of Kiev-Pechersk monastery Dionysius. Founder of dug himself a cave in the Volga River, in the same way steel equipped and his few followers. Hence the name of the monastery-Pechersky monastery. Over time, the display first, then wooden buildings and stone churches, cells, outbuildings. 18 June 1597 year giant mountain landslide completely destroyed the monastery. Fortunately, the monks and the property of the monastery a week before the katostrofy were evacuated to a safe place. New construction monks started upstream and closer to the city. In the historic section of the site of Pechersky Ascension monastery indicate that his "erected" Royal stone "apprentice Antip Vozoulin, Fedor Izosima, starets Oparin, Kostroma and balahninskie Masons. The monastic ensemble with Chief pjatiglavym Voznesensky Cathedral was built towards the middle of the 17th century ". In the year 1925, the monastery was transferred to the Gubmuzeja. The building gave under the housing and economic needs, the bells and the fence pereplavili. In the year 1960 the ensemble Nizhny Novgorod Ascension Pechersky monastery was given the status of an architectural monument of national significance. In the year 1971 productions team Gorky special scientific restoration workshop have been partially restored voznesensky Cathedral, assumption Church, bishops hull, walls and towers. In the year 1994 the monastery was returned to the Russian Orthodox Church, and in 2000 year, the consecration of the Ascension Cathedral. After passing through the gate, pay attention to tiles which abundantly decorated the pillars of the fence. Following that throws universal curiosity-tilting Bell Tower. In the 17th century with draught bulk soil Bell Tower is visibly bent. In the year 1751 Masons built top of the belfry strictly vertically, so the tiers of the Bell Tower of the 17th and 18th centuries are relative to the horizon in different axes. The fact that the building is already more than two centuries proves the correctness of the computed solution. As regards small museums organized monastic houses, we couldn't get into them. Felt that once the door is closed, then breaks it. And so every time:)

  • A little away from the city, while we were walking, it is worth approaching to this monastery. We did it on the way to the cable car. It is located in the middle of a natural park of menera that when you get close you domes you Excel on the mass of trees, giving it a nice appearance. Interesting Orthodox enclosure with tones of green.
