  • A brief history: in 1539 year two opposing OPG decided to meet in this place. However, after seeing a strange light, ran for pop. In those days there was no Google, so fled for pop. Pop ran and decided to drive a cross but once nailed it, right out of the ground scoring key. The key is long and tedious trying to zagadit′ everything from excellent, to the authorities. But he still beats the joy to all. What awesomeness? So that despite the nekazistost′ soil, in place of the key river running nearby, makes a bend at 180 degrees. Whatever the weather, when I arrive there exactly at the time of approach to font-the sun comes out. The water is very tasty. Come rarely, am not walruses, but neither in winter nor in summer when bathing and then not drinking prostužalsâ. There is a helipad, but if you're not proud, order 45-km from Moscow and there you are. If you go on a weekday, just in case you take a container for water-father sometimes got up and buy at the nearest Temple packagings for water cannot. The road now woke up and otgrejdirovali in the Woods, so will even Ferrari. After a visit to recommend Okovcy-village 1 km away from the key-very nice place.

  • Excellent location, only minus-far from Moscow. Navigator got into the forest, but we did not particularly upset because came upon a mushroom place and collected the package of chanterelles. After I got out of the forest, the road asked residents and further focused on the signs. Visited this place Friday morning, people were not, therefore, place especially liked) plunged into kupele (water very cold, no more 4-x degrees, bring your swimwear! Fonts total), obtained the water canister, bought a very delicious cakes in the monastery shop. The source is far from the hustle and bustle, in the woods near the River, everyone there will get a little peace of mind and balance! I recommend to visit this holy place!

  • Vacationing in the area of Seliger and on the way back we stopped at Moscow Okoveckij source, known for its healing water. Get to the source of Selizharovo, Engels str. turn and continue on the main road to nowhere without collapsing. After about 26 km is the village of Griškino, which offers maps Yandex collapse to the source-but is there a complete off-road. It is necessary to pass through the village and a little further is the first pointer left to the source along a dirt road (no more than two miles): so you will be taken to the closest parking to the source. However, if you go a little further, there will be a second a pointer to the source, but already partially paved road, but from there to the source will have to walk through a forest of wooden flooring-even and beautiful, but if you are going to gain a lot of water, carry sweat away. Better collapse the first pointer. If you prefer, you can call in Okovcy (the next village after Griškino)-there is the icon of our Lady of Smolensk Church 2-nd half of the 18th century, built on the site of the phenomenon Okoveckoj icon of the mother of God. The territory of Okoveckogo source of the airport and is very beautiful. We were all in the summer greenery, flowers. There is a small shrine. On the way to the source of the Billboard described the history of the place. And the source itself, and place the water intake are well maintained and comfortable. There is a pool with a wooden deck and locker rooms. There is a house where you can grab a bite to eat: fresh pastries, kvas, tea, herbal tea, mulled wine. You can also purchase herbal balm with herbs, SAP cedar, monastic wine (0.5 l 200 roubles), kvass with a (1.5 l 150 roubles). In the church a bench you can buy empty containers for a set of water, herbal, jam in assortment (250 rub./jar), honey (800 rub/kg)-all under monastic brand, as well as shirts for bathing (490 rubles). When we arrived with a bus full of pilgrims. Despite the bad weather (there were no more than +19 and it rained), most immediately headed to the fonts. By the way, the water at the source and font (flowing) all year round + 4S. Surprised that the pilgrims (mostly women) gained quite a bit of water from the source (small bottle). Asked why, they say that by adding the water a little at a time to another, give and the curative properties. And we scored a lot for myself and for family and friends (on request). 24 July a procession. On the Internet you can find analysis of water from this source. Upset only toilet next to the parking: outside a beautiful wooden house, and inside the well, very dirty ...
