  • Really good place to visit with the family. Learn some history, try some traditional russian food and visit one of the Russian holiest sites with the Theotokos of Tikhvin icon. You can visit the museu...  more »
  • Specifically, that would take a walk to see this monument of architecture and see the famous Tikhvin icon. This is a valid Orthodox monastery, so it's quiet, cozy, very calmly, worries and anxieties remain outside the gate. The main attraction of the Central architectural ensemble of the city. The monastery was founded in 1560 by the Decree of Tsar Ivan IV Vasilyevich (terrible). The main shrine of the monastery of the Theotokos of Tikhvin is considered miraculous. According to legend, worshipped the miraculous icon has been written by Apostle and evangelist Luke during the life of the mother of God. Kept in Jerusalem, then in Constantinople, the icon suddenly disappeared, to be over the waters of Lake Ladoga, on the site of the Church of all saints. But when believers began building the Chapel, the icon mysteriously began on the other Bank of the river Tihvinki, where with the blessing of Dmitry Donskoy and the Archbishop of Novgorod Alexia in 1383 he was built a wooden assumption Cathedral. Soon the Church was rebuilt in stone on the model of the assumption Cathedral in the Kremlin, while Ivan Grozny around the Temple Monastery was established. According to legend, the Cathedral is crowned by wooden crosses, because it was on a wooden cross Jesus was crucified, and when you try to install an iron cross it blew off the wind. The miraculous icon made many healings, three remain intact after fires and, according to one legend, helped to save the cloister from the Swedes in the 17th century. Tikhvin icon itself makes an impression: it's beauty and serenity, and energy! Very beautiful frescos of 16-17th century. And what kind of people! You are welcomed as guests, all! And sellers.

  • Every time visiting the Tikhvin monastery, I reverently pass through the Gate Church with a pretty name "Porch" and get into heaven on Earth ... Quiet, calm, measured, beautifully, reasonably priced ... And the magnificent assumption Cathedral and belfry, a refectory, and even the recently restored Krsetovozdvizhenskij Cathedral. Oh and herself Protectress of the icon of the Tikhvin mother of God ... Feet become rubbery, tears flow from the eyes themselves, soul freezes our shrines. People, if you want to touch the shrine-come to the Tikhvin assumption monastery-you won't regret it. ...
