  • Beauty monastery me impressed and despite a hundred construction yet not that corners of the monastery, on site very nice and snug, all filled with history and antiquity. We only wish that were already in the evening (5:00 pm), a church bench had already been closed down and refectory, too, in the other it is not a problem, but there have been in the service, liked the decoration of the temple and the atmosphere prevails there, I didn't want to leave. This monastery is fortified further by Ivan the terrible in the format of the present fortress withstood the invasion of Polish troops in the year 1609. The main temple of the monastery was built on behest of Ivan the terrible in 1561-1564. A small church is the first stone building of the monastery, built under Vasily III in the year 1520, became a modest side-chapel at the southern foot of the new Cathedral. The monastery is dedicated to St. Nikita Martyr. I advise you to visit this place! We accidentally heard not a big passage that spoke of the Guide and then I read even the history of the monastery.

  • Quite often there are. If you go to Jaroslavka, be sure to visit the source at this monastery. There's a tasty water. And, of course, go and the monastery. It is an ancient, atmospheric and authentic. When you are in the temple, time seems to stop.
