    Interesting ensemble. Smolensky Cathedral, even without restoration, worth a look. Beautifully restored gate cerkovka the apostle. The monastery is worth just walking, there kinds of awesome. It should not be overlooked and the monastery and a farmstead. Sbiten, the local will be a pleasant surprise. Tasty and local eggs. Almost all with two yolks)))))

    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.

    Visited the monastery the whole family (mom and son 2. Papa). Location-on the shore of. Seliger. Soothing, exotic atmosphere, interesting building the monastery, its history, its cleanliness and landscaping-all pleasing to the eyes and soul.
