  • Tikhvin monastery is truly a holy place. Here is a quiet and calm atmosphere, nice people work everywhere. The area around the monastery and Cathedral very well groomed and having for a pleasant walk. The greatest value of the temple is the Tikhvin icon of the mother of God. It makes a strong impression and it is almost always crowded, especially on weekends. Also on the territory of the monastery there is a very beautiful an icon and a souvenir shop and a café where you can refresh yourself. In my opinion, the monastery is one of the most beautiful places of the Leningrad region and really worthy poeshhenija

  • Went with friends to the Tikhvin monastery and see the famous icon. Frankly speaking, beauty is indescribable. Icon fascinates with its beauty. There is a small dining area where they sell pies. These pies I will remember for a very long time) what they were delicious!

  • Tikhvin uspensky monastery is a real visiting card of the city. Monastery founded in 1560 year, at the behest of Ivan the terrible, was not only a bastion of orthodoxy in the Northwest, but powerful outpost on the border (after losing the izhorian lands). Possessing Whitestone fortification Tikhvin monastery has managed to resist the onslaught of the Swedes, reflecting all of the assaults. On the territory of the monastery is preserved in its original form, the magnificent beauty of the belfry, a large number of churches: Cathedral of the assumption, krestovozdvizhenskaya Church, Pokrovskaya Church, Church of the twelve apostles. Have the opportunity to visit the monastic cells, historical-Memorial and architectural-Art Museum, potrapezdnichat' in the refectory, belfry, Ka look at Tikhvin monastery with bird's-eye view, hear the church choir. Impression of the visit remained favourable, even in spite of the atheistic perceptions passed Soviet education.
