  • The monastery is located in a very beautiful place and has a rich history with 11 century. you can climb the Tower, from where you can see the whole city. I recommend taking a tour.

  • Borisoglebsk monastery in the town of Torzhok. The monastery is visible from any point of the city and is a symbol of the town of Torzhok. It is named in honour of the first Russian Saints Boris and Gleb. It was founded by the Reverend Ephraim. In Soviet times, converted into a prison. Is a gradual revival of once-beautiful buildings. Revive harder than destroying. But the beauty is back. God willing, everything will be fine again. Much has already been done. More needs to be done. It is already possible to climb the tower and see the panorama of the city from high altitude. Gilded dome of the gate of the Church. The hotel is arranged. In one of the temples is the service for several years.

  • Borisoglebsky Monastery-the main attraction of Torzhok. The territory is quite large, but is only a small part, the rest of the space is used for the needs of the monastery and is not available to visitors. The monastery is very beautiful, but desolate. Although I personally prefer this type because in such places there is old. Traces of the same restoration is, but she is clearly very slowly. Be sure to climb the Bell Tower (100 rubles), view from her magnificent.
