  • Visited Spaso-vifanskij monastery. Decree on the establishment of the monastery was signed by Paul first. Like all monasteries after the revolution, the monastery was used for other purposes. It even called Pticegradom. Rebounding from the 90 's. Partially restored. But that has been restored, it creates a very cozy place. Unusually high flowers and numerous butterflies on them. A fairly large assortment in the Church. Fresh pastries. Beautiful plants and flowers. We liked. We recommend you to visit, but optimally visit later after recovery.

  • Spaso-Vifanskij monastery I came because my father visit Nikon ... I was visiting his father and he spoke of this monastery. Naturally, I wanted to see it and the father agreed with me to go there. We have parked near walls of monastery and the first thing I went to the monument to Metropolitan Platon. then we passed under nadvratnym Temple and faced a small graceful Temple in which I am interested in monogram ... the temple was closed, but the father went to ikonnuû shop and returned together with the monk who opened the shrine. with the sign of the cross, I entered the temple. ... and I froze in surprise. in front of me opens a unique iconostasis in the form of Mount Tabor! ... I half breadth visited very many wonderful and amazing temples, but such iconostasis I saw for the first time. the iconostasis has two limit: first and second bottom on top of the mountain, where footsteps ... unique and chandelier: it consists of separate links from 3-x lamps, each link can be removed in General, season with oil lamp-light bodies and again return in the overall chain of ... the whole mountain is decorated with fresh flowers in pots. there in the temple and its miraculous icon is the icon of the mother of God "joy of all who sorrow with grošikami". the priest blessed the climb to the top of the mountain, where there is an upper limit. amazing sense of ownership to the Lord! ... then I saw a lithograph of this temple, where he was depicted in full glory. father Nikon said that and the upper limit will be fully restored and will be the same as in lithography. We left the temple and entered the ikonnuû shop, where I acquired a lithograph of this temple. We're back with the priest in his monastery, where I have him and said goodbye. but then I have all my friends and acquaintances drove in Sergiyev Posad, to show this miracle!

  • In Sergiev Posad, all tourists visit Sergieva lavra. And it is a pity that few travelers visiting a quiet and private place Spaso-Vifanskoj monastery. But here there is something to take a look! Architecturally extraordinary shrine, which houses the miraculous icon of the mother of God "joy of all who sorrow" (c) grošikami, the story of which was very interesting. Beautiful kolokol′na with a fortification wall. A monument to the founder of the monastery, an extraordinary man and a famous svâŝenoslužitelû Metropolitan Platon of Moscow (Levšinu), contemporaries of Catherine the great, Paul and Alexander 1 1. The silence and privacy of this site is quite rare in our time, petty things. And the buffet of the monastery you can buy delicious milk, cottage cheese, eggs from your own farmstead. And cakes and pastries they have. ... Mmmmmm
