  • After the book "Everyday saints" really like here. This is really an extraordinary place, where you can feel the presence of the Holy Spirit. In Pskov a day visit it was cloudy, but the Sun was shining.

  • Were on the first day after Christmas run of Pskov with the children. Came already towards evening, but managed to look in the caves and in the temple service. The monastery is very well maintained, vintage, be nice. The guard at the gate was very nice. Recommend.

  • Really ancient and historic place, go and see and you will find a fantastic pittoresk monastir.
  • The place to be. Please touch base with the Visitor Service a day or two in advance, if you are planning to visit the caves. Hierodeacon Lazarus (Lazar) is the man in charge.
  • Super !
  • Class monastery. Class brethren. Governor class! God's assistance.

  • Were in the 12-m-17 and m respectively. In 12-meters are trapped in a cave with a group of Belarusians (allowed only groups) tried to thank:) said give it better on a church. This year stopped nostalgia:) Funny that the road from the highway to Pechoram (turn right directly behind Izborskom) marked as paid, but in fact there are no points of payment
