  • Being in Tikhvin, visited the monastery three times! The place has an amazing attraction! Located in a beautiful location on the Bank of the river Tihvinki, near a small park with a pond. Unique architectural objects 16-17 the centuries, ending with the aura of the place, and of course the icon ... Tikhvin. For believers is one of the main shrines. For me simply a work of art. Specially went to the monastery in weekdays-people a little bit, no senseless tourist crowds, say as in kievo-pecherskaya or Troitse-sergiyeva laurels ... While the icon is still almost always at least a little, but the queue. Very pleased representatives of monks and attendants-all very friendly! No screams-type "there cannot be, here is" not as in some modern "sensitive" monasteries-for example in Novo-Golutvino in Kolomna, about what I wrote. You can go and take photos almost anywhere. The monastery is good its integrated, very neat and tidy, perfectly renovated. That's really really can tell-soul rests here! Even I have pers. ..

  • 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.

  • Very nice! A must see if you are in the area.
  • An extraordinary place! Total appeasement! On the territory of the monastery is currently going restoration work, but it doesn't hurt to visit the shrine. There is also a monastic Tearoom, where you can not very expensive and tasty meal. All food is prepared in the monastery. The territory to be a park with a pond. All very nice and sleek.
