  • 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

  • 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.
