  • When visiting the Lavra decided to stay overnight in a hotel in Lavra, to get to the morning service. Vintage thick absolutely does not allow extraneous sounds walls, icons on the walls, asceticism and purity, absence of household appliances. All together, superimposed on impression of fullness and holiness of the place and the proximity of the Lavra create an atmosphere of complete peace and goodness. Monastic dining room at the hotel with a simple but tasty home-style (Grandma's) food. After top-notch service otstojavshej lie down in his room and you start to lighten and understand the meaning of the impermanence of life and the hustle and bustle of our lives! Highly recommend! And not even for the purpose of determining accommodations, and in a few moments of mental equilibrium. Yours Faithfully, Nikolay. Moscow.
