  • This is a very nice place, and not only because of the architecture, but primarily Orthodox spiritual atmosphere. We had a wonderful guide Ale (+7 (960) 036-74-49) a believer and a professional.

  • Beautiful monastery. Was here on tours, impressed by the incredible! Very sorry that all running-jogging, I would like to take a stroll here independently and freely. Bring empty containers to recruit holy water. And the prices here on it in bottles not small-50 rub. for 0.5 litre.

  • The monastery with shrines and rich history. Unfortunately, failed to give it enough time (we had to lay the baby to sleep). The monastery is not great, but inside a few temples, beside the Lake. There is something to see and where to walk around.

  • 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!
  • Ok
  • It's quite peaceful place, very calm.
  • Nice to see
  • Beautiful monastery, with a very attentive and patient clergy. Stopped at the home of Pilgrim: very clean, comfortable, nicely. The House has its own parking, for living free.
