  • Of all the temples of the monastery are most remembered for its unusual Trinity Temple-tomb of Tutolminyh. It is light, elegant, with bright murals. The rest is not much different from other old monasteries in Russia. However, vvedenska Church also looks quite unusual. Beautiful view of the monastery from the opposite shore. I think that in the warmer months, the combination of old Russian architecture and nature very harmoniously.

  • Beautiful and well maintained. Minimum of pilgrims. All very democratic. Though the monastery and masculine, but nobody pestering women over trousers and uncovered head. The monks willingly answer questions about the history of the monastery and temples. In the refectory of the "complexes" for 250 p. per person. It tastes very good. Prepare yourself, plus its pastries.

  • Many tourists, pilgrimage place is not popular, no monks, no dining room. Quite a beautiful architectural ensemble on the Bank of the Volga River, painting in churches is not preserved. The rest of the church more modern and old women on them trees
