The water at the source is very tasty. Interesting legends, including about the famous Abbot Cornelius, whom Ivan the terrible "personally cut off the head". Actually the head executioner chopped and not innocent. Abbot Cornelius really well plotted treason, pass livoncam and lands of Pskov region even have documents, letters the Cornelia. Pechora monastery fortress have never managed to take the world by storm!

Необыкновенное место. Лучше поехать туда летом, когда цветёт этот кусочек райского сада на земле (на Успение, 28 августа - рискованно, слишком много паломников и туристов).

It is better to go there in the summer when blossoms this piece of Eden on Earth (on the Assumption, 28 August-risky, too many pilgrims and tourists). This was my third visit to the monastery (previous were at times strong USSR and reconstruction), and each time this place seems to me to be better. After reading the book "Everyday Saints ' Monastery of skeptics and atheists as well. At the checkout when buying tickets we were offered a tour guide-this was the highest-level tour for two families with children for an hour and a half, watched the monastery with two viewing platforms and walked around the territory. Fortunately, now the history of the monastery illustrate objectively, without notes and stamps.

God put in the cave were recorded in advance for two weeks just to get there. The temperature there is already no no +5 and all degrees 10. Deep believers in these caves to behave like a herd of sheep .... Rod on a break, pushed .... That would get the uspensky Cathedral of the need to attend the morning service to 5-6 am in 6-30 it closes. I recommend to all travelers.

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.
