  • Spaso-Vifanskij monastery is located near Chernigov Gethsemane Skete monastery and if you have time and have a desire to see something else, besides the Lavra in Sergiev Posad, then it is possible to visit this extraordinary place. Unusually it so that on the territory of the monastery is a small church of the Transfiguration (or Cathedral), built inside mount of stones, which was buried under the righteous Lazarus. It really is very unusual, I previously this is nowhere to be seen. Inside the Temple in the cave under the mountain and at its top are the altars of the church holidays, days can go to the altar upstairs. If you arrive in times of worship, the Church may be closed, but if you want to inspect it inside and see Mount, you can ask an employee of the Church benches open it, which besides that holds you in the temple (though briefly, on examination given minutes 10-15, are permitted to photograph), and hold a small excursion into the history of the temple. In the Church at the monastery store sold its sobtstvennaja baking (breads, pies), as well as burgers, etc Bread quickly dismantled if came not in watch morning worship (as I understood), it seems likely that the bread you try will fail (like us).

  • The lower altar is made in the form of mountains and caves at the same time, never seen such a temple. There is a refectory, Church bench. Good baking and books about the monastery. Worth a visit because of the singularity. Lots of parking space

  • Unusual features and device dikovinnost the main Transfiguration Cathedral will leave an unforgettable impression, namely: is the altars of the temple cave and the Tabor mountains. Despite the fact that considerable time is still needed for a full revival of the monastery, it is already causing incredible interest.

  • Spent a week in Moscow, visited many monasteries and temples, but the meeting with Andrey in Spaso-Vifanskom monastery is the most memorable. It all started with a delicious coffee and interesting conversations in the monastery shop, and then we couldn't leave the extraordinary Temple. Thanks for everything!

  • Totally awesome two-story Temple: the bottom-Vifanskaja cave with the altar in memory of the Resurrection of Lazarus; Top-Mount Tabor with the altar in honor of Transfiguration. Nothing like I have not seen anywhere else! Very interesting temple.
