  • Monastery was founded on Zhitennom island in the year 1716. Since its inception and until closing during the Soviet period the monastery was male, and only in 2002, was opened as the convent. Since then, the restored monastery. Gate Church of St. John the Evangelist and St. Andrew again very beautiful! Repair and fence of the monastery in 2000-ies built a new monastery enclosure with a House Church. However, the central building of the complex-Smolensky Cathedral with the Bell Tower-not yet restored. We walked to the monastery territory, joining the tours held by one of the nuns. Came and Gate Church.

  • In the monastery itself is not repeated, but here's the next there is a wooden lotochek, spot palatochka with delicious pastries, which is cooked at the monastery. Yum. Also a great selection of fresh dairy products produced in the same place (goat cheese, milk, sour cream, etc.). As a gift for dear colleagues/relatives/friends here you can buy honey, jams, teas, Mead, sbiten, all in beautiful packages, all better than drag magnets: ₽
