  • As with the others, an impressive interior, both the iconostasis as the frescoes. When we visited there wasn’t any service being conducted.

  • Very white and shine church that nicely compound in Lavra - good to see such a masterpiece of architecture and christianity. Visited many times to see its beautiful complexity and easy look
  • I spiritually enjoyed being there. Don't miss any cathedral, neither forget to take your bottle of water from the source located in a small shrine. I highly recommend this place for people looking for a spiritual encounter with the origin of the Russian Orthodoxy, instead of a standard walkion a nice place and get come food, some merchandising and fresh air.
