  • Let's start with the address: tikhvinskaya Street is the road to the monastery of densely usižennaâ wishing to sell something not too real prices. Main entrance-pharmacy shop. The allejke kiosk with an edible. The wickets are very tasty, but the bread and black and white-No. Be sure to locate the entrance to the Museum: there's an interesting, and souvenirs are not consumer goods.

  • Next to the monastery is quite picturesque Park. Autumn is in full swing. Park now painted all paints. Very nice walk along its alleys and rustle with leaves.

  • Beautiful old place. The main attraction is the Tikhvin icon of the mother of God. Came alone without excursions. Impressions are mixed: on the one hand the holy place, the beautifully and quietly, and, on the other hand, brisk trade as near the monastery and the monastery. Remains stable and serious impression marketing factory trinkets to tourists. Icons, icons, svečečki, plates, etc. even the entrance to the monastery is decorated as a tourist shop, and only through it you can enter the territory. Church bench in the Temple also framed as a gift shop: input, output, etc.-Commerce throughout. Yes, I understand that the temple should earn, but there is a line which I think here has overstepped. Prior to this they in old Ladoga in Ladoga Holy Dormition Nunnery. Here is a really sacred place, which has not lost its Sanctity. The monastery was preparing to celebrate the anniversary of 900: builders and organizers scurrying, but still in the territory was such a calm and appeasement, there was no trace in Tikhvin monastery. Walked around the territory for more than an hour.
