  • No matter what you worship, coming here for sure you will not regret. Everyone here is very nice and temples and walls and the Lake and the forest. At any time of the year you can enjoy beautiful views. And if you are Orthodox, and pray in the holy place. Agnostics recommend bring capacity and dial the purest (Holy) water from a local source. In the winter, to be christened the wizard set carved from ice sculptures. It is now, but unfortunately short-lived art.

  • The amazing silence and tranquility. Time has stopped here. Winter forest around the monastery, on the pond ice "town" of the sculptures. Walked, venerated the shrines, drinking holy water (very soft, pleasant to the taste), stroked the numerous local cats. Visited as part of a group (bus tour). Impressions are wonderful!

  • Been here twice, and each time you feel the peace and quiet of this place, life runs quietly and slowly, and it helps to tune in a positive way.

  • 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!
