  • Visited Raif in 2016 in the fall. A very beautiful place, there is a legend that the frogs are not croaking here so as not to interfere with the monks to read, and we really did not hear them. The mon...  more »
  • Just visited the Raifskom monastery. Lucky with the weather: Sun, heat. It's beautiful. Probably it would be quiet at other times. Now a lot of people. Here it makes sense to come to yourself, not to orintirovat'sja on time and in a calm atmosphere all to see and admire nature.

  • Have been on tours, a good guide, I wonder myself telling a small monastery is open for visiting two temples. Noted feature, almost all Orthodox churches are prohibited from taking pictures, and in the mosques on the contrary allowed. Worth a trip but probably better off without the excursions that would enjoy the atmosphere, feel the energy, and not be limited by time of departure of the bus. I recommend to go twice, once with a guide and once themselves.

  • Nice except for keepnrussia strong political banner has no place at a monastery. A few hundred meters was a monument about the secret police and members of the red army being killed during the revolution. "Why this happened is not important" Oh??? Actually the red army and secret police were desecrating the monastary and the village people killed them. Not long after many villagers were executed and/or sent to Siberia! Interesting how Russia treats history, even now! Very sad!
  • It's quite peaceful place, very calm.
  • Nice to see
  • Go here almost every year. A great place for walking and for the soul. Lately a lot of entrepreneurs out there, the terms of trade. But the place is still beautiful!
