  • This place does not need anyone's assessment of how any shrine. Ladies only some tips to those who come here for the first time. If you have the opportunity to better settle into the old hotel. I wrote separately about her, but even the fact of the matter is that it is close and very convenient to visit Lavra. Usually in 5.30 happens fraternal prayer before the relics of the venerable Series in Trinity Church. Books and disks is better to buy in a shop near the water tower. There the largest selection.
