  • 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.

  • Each year arrive in the Tikhvin monastery. A lot of work to rebuild and still a lot remains to be done. This year's visit to the holy site has made a strong impression on me, helped mentally calm down. Each stannik will find its solace. And those who are simply curious-take a look on the way back in the refectory for kvas, here are doing the best in the whole LO.

  • Went with a girlfriend in Tikhvin one day, walked from the bus terminal, the town is very cute, very many wooden houses, though some of them are no longer living. Tikhvinsky monastery is the most famous landmark of the town. In the Cathedral which is the famous icon of the Tikhvin mother of God. Around the Cathedral Park and landscaped pond, really nice stroll. Outside of the monastery really watch, flowers, grass trimmed, the tracks removed. There are even free toilets. I advise you to visit the monastery tea. In warm weather you can sit on the street with a cup of natural herbal teas (there's a good choice), and eat a serving of pancakes. The recommended donation-60 USD) is also installed on site information stands-you can read about the history of the monastery and icon. On output worth shop with souvenirs, woman-the seller graciously held us small historical info)) some of the facts were indeed very interesting! And this for a small fee in the region of 100 USD for the miraculous icon, which helps to marry;)) visiting this place definitely recommend!
