  • Certainly, the main tourist object of Tikhvin. Spectacular white walls and silhouettes of temples. Catchy belfry, which has become a symbol of the city. Especially good views of the Cathedral ensemble lookout on Mount Fishevoj, or from the opposite bank of the pond, Tabora by Orel St. The main object in the monastery is the icon of our Lady of Tikhvin in the Dormition Cathedral, as well as the frescoes of the Cathedral. Available to visit several churches. Here are the premises of the Museum of local lore (about it-in a separate post). Highly recommend a peek in the refectory of the monastery. Baking there is something. Hot mulled wine or a drink with Cranberries go perfectly. And all this for understandable money. A wide choice of souvenirs at the shop when the Dormition Cathedral. From edible souvenirs-monastic gingerbread. I am glad to see that the development of the monastery and adjacent areas as a tourist object-compared with the previous visit (in 2014), there were some excellent walking paths with bridges, lighting and benches around the pond Tabory. Restored Peter gateways through which appeared closed route through gateways, Fishevu mountain, past the Museum of Rimsky-Korsakov. Everywhere there are signs and information boards. In the monastery and its walls have streamlined trade souvenirs. Appeared a decent toilet (from South of belfry). Impressions from a visit to the monastery of exclusively positive. Come back.
