    Restored in the 90-ies of the last century, the monastery. With complex and interesting history. The Church, located on the territory of the monastery, the relics of Alexander Svirsky, relics of other Saints. One of only seven copies of the ploshhanic (the original is in Turin) of Jesus. Located in a picturesque place on the Bank of the river Svir. Informative!

    When the monastery was nicknamed the "Northern Lavra ' because he owned extensive lands and obeyed 27 monasteries. The incredible beauty of the monastery. You can take an excursion for 150 p, we have led Elena accompanying the Church, very interesting told the story of the temple and the life of Alexander Svirsky monastery, whose relics are kept in the temple, to venerate and ask about something very witty and unseen. The monastery operates its own bakery and cooking. Very tasty pies for 40 b. There is a souvenir shop where you can buy slippers (200 p) impregnated with Mira with relics of the Svir, say help from pain in his legs. Dial the holy water bottles you can buy in the store (50 p.). And of course enjoy the nature around!

  • A large monastery in a beautiful location. Standing on the shore of the Lake. There is a café-the refectory for pilgrims. Really enjoyed the place though and go far. Have not regretted. Nearby is the old courtyard in the old Russian style. Just like in the movies
