    Public transport nearby, in good weather, it is easy to walk (I spent 30 minutes of Thunderous Tower). The territory is small temple (classic and a bit heavy) surrounded by an earthen rampart, where beautiful rose bushes. Named in honor of the first Abbot, Archimandrite Abraham (one of the first saints of Smolensk, writer and philosopher). Before the gates of the venerable monument, near billboards with pictures of the destruction during the war 1941-45 Gg.

    Hello, how can I write bad about this monastery. I resident of Smolensk, visit this monastery. Very sinful, that doesn't happen often. namolenoe is the place where all the employees are kind and considerate to all. no rudeness and indifference. about what grandmas writes the man, why nagovarivat' for people, it's the same sin. Come to Smolensk and visit this monastery. Especially stand at the service carried out by father Oleg and you get emotional tenderness and calmness.

    I saw many monasteries and interesting. A place you can visit, but elation there will. Pretty standard built inside too nothing original. Angry grannies inside spoil everything. Once again marvel at why churches serve these disgruntled and disenchanted in the lives of people who are absolutely far from the teachings of the religion which so jealously guard.
