Монастырь небольшой, в разы меньше, например, Троице-Сергиевой лавры или Дивеевского монастыря. Паломников сравнительно мало, город ооочень тихий! Но в монастыре очень красиво и самобытно! В Успенском... read more »A small monastery, a fraction, for example, the Trinity-Sergius Lavra or Diveyevo monastery. Relatively few pilgrims, a city so quiet! But the monastery is very beautiful and original! In the uspensky cave temple relics of the Holy Martyr monastery Abbot Cornelius, on the territory of the monastery are God SIS caves (just not very clear how to get there). The following concept is amazing, vyčitannaâ in one of the guidebooks: on the day of the assumption, when people cannot fit in the Dormition Church, liturgy is celebrated outdoors on an elevated platform in front of Uspensky Temple, with icons on the Assumption (and Pokrovsk) temples serve altarnymi icons, the sublime is the altar, walls of the temple are the cloisters, and the dome of the sky.show original
Очень красивое место. Даже людям не верующим, но интересующимся историей, здесь есть что посмотреть и проникнуться духом.

Even people not a believer, but people interested in history, here is what to look and spirit. Unfortunately, we fell that day, when both the cathedral were closed, but also that we have seen has made a big impression on us.

Arrived early in the morning, thought that people would be a little wrong, has already had several coaches, for water and in church shop have already been queued. But this did not prevent enjoy the atmosphere-very beautiful temples (especially liked the bottom, you need to drop down about 100 meters on the mountain), have not got-a huge turn. Be sure to visit, if you are near.show original
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.
Геннадий ВасильевIf you want to see the holy place-come here! The monastery since its foundation never closed each day on the Charter of the Orthodox Church to celebrate the liturgy and other services here was inhabited by many famous spiritual pastors orthodoxy (including Patriarch Pimen), Fr. John Krest′ânkin, Savva shiigumen, Archimandrite Alypy many other true patriots of our mother-church. There are Saints canonized in centuries past and in our time. A special place here-nerukotvornnye, God SIS caves in which one realizes that got into another world ... that thou, man, in General not eternal in this earthly fuss and it's time to think about the future, about the future in eternity. And the belfry! When listened to, chose to your opinion, the best place on the square in front of her and felt (really) blows two big bells, vibrations directly in the chest! And not deaf, that I, frankly, surprised. By the way, Bell ringing and treats, and shooing demons. But even here, read Psalms oil-constant prayer of monks (blessed shiigumen Sawa). Generally, place, grace namolennoe, something this special, чтоли. Here is a little slice of heaven on the sinful Earth, and in this special grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary his mother to Russia. Praise the Savior, that he has given us this abode!show original
