  • Very impressive and Sviyazhsk island and, of course, the main Cathedral of the icon of the mother of God of joy of all who sorrow. Visited travel very much. Early in the morning, when the tourists with tours, yet here is very calm, quiet, umirotvorjonno, only local residents. Such a Grace Cathedral was renovated, inside you can put candles, will be added to the icon. Somewhere around 11 am bringing tourists to the island, and then life boils-fair, souvenir shops. Be sure to come back here

  • The Cathedral amazes and power buildings and interiors. In the Cathedral on the right you can venerate the relics of St. Herman (Archbishop of Kazan and Svijazhskogo). In front of the Cathedral on the left don't miss a wooden church built in 1550 GG, monument of wooden architecture of the times of Ivan the terrible and the taking of Kazan.

  • Entry to the island outside transport is forbidden, you can leave your car in a guarded parking lot in front of the island. After climbing the stairs and the entrance to the territory of the island turn right onto Trinity, go past the Equestrian yard about 400 meters. The monastery is located on the right. Navigation season the island can be reached by river transport from the river port of Kazan. Cathedral of the icon of the mother of God "joy of all who sorrow" (1898-1906). This temple reminded me of Easter cake as icing his white domes, distinguished from all points of the island. The walls are decorated with semicircular pilasters, nishkami, rods, friezes and cornices at different levels. Doors, stairs, railings and crosses are made of forged metal. A decorative Temple gives the combination of red bricks and white lime male. Today the Cathedral is the main dominant in the South-Eastern part of the island.
