  • The temple is visible from afar from different parts of the island of Anzerine, being located at the highest point of the island. He rebuilt after destruction of Soviet times. In vremne of the Gulag prisoners lived in the temple and the protection on different floors. The temple is not heated and the inmates slept in several layers to keep warm. Descriptions of the various abuse inflicted on prisoners do not want to even write. The temple traced the serpentine, which allows you to effortlessly climb to the top.

  • A great excursion. Very interesting. Need a lot of walking. Not everyone will be able to pass the 10-12 km on forest paths. Be sure to take funds from the mosquitoes and midges. As well. Beauty. Air. Beautiful views.

  • If you decide to go with an excursion on the 27, it is necessary to reach this monastery. Located on a hill, the road to it is not easy, but worth it. Feeling inexpressible. Moreover, that nature is very beautiful, there is the environment itself has a good case. Think to visit necessarily, I really enjoyed it, especially if you listen to the story of the Guide.
