  • Still, until recently, it was acting military radio-electronic struggle, now almost all buildings placed in the keeping of the Volgograd diocese according to the current legislation. History of the monastery begins with the year 1903, when We arose the construction Committee St. Dukhovskoy monastery. In 1912 year compound has already been transformed into a monastery. From 1908 onwards the monastery was a monk Iliodor-odious personality, who left behind a deep imprint the ambiguity of its acts in history. In those days the monastery was enriched by underground passages and catacombs, which had played a role in saving the inhabitants of Stalingrad from the bombings. The Nazis used the monastery as a concentration camp, but during the defense of the city, the monastery was almost completely destroyed. First church was given one of the buildings of the military unit, as the place of the former monastery of the Holy Spirit, which is the Goblin Temple, Orthodox spiritual school and University, and in subsequent years the monastery has developed and slowly got to his maintenance and other buildings. Now the Zoo is supported by the priest Vasiliskom, as well as the residence of the Metropolitan of Volgograd and Kamyshin Herman. It is a pity that because of the hoisting of groundwater as a result of unthinking high-rise building of city to restore underground galleries where the rumored underground two carts, will never succeed.

  • The monastery was returned to the Church, one of the first in Volgograd. For a long time there was a military unit, but currently, a church and a monastery. In the Church of the baptized one of my granddaughters. In the courtyard there is a small Zoo, where several live birds and animals. You can show your kids after attending Church. On weekdays the parishioners a bit. Always go here, passing by.

  • I have several times visited the shrine at the monastery. The entrance to the temple is situated on the bustling thoroughfare Rokossovsky Street. Very large room. During the Soviet times in the buildings of the monastery was a military unit. In the beginning of 90-ies the temple appeared, the residence of the Archbishop and cloister. Where is the temple, were built for other purposes, and therefore it is difficult to see the temple. rescued by extension made after conversion and a small dome on the roof. In the church there are always a lot of people.

  • The current men's monastery, located within the city limits. In the temple holy relics and miraculous icon. In the courtyard - a mini-zoo of animals rescued from poachers. For children, a great school of kindness

  • It's a beautiful place. But not very competent people work in the candlelight. And yet, why do candles are removed and moreover, they are deliberately extinguished when not yet fully burnt? The candle should burn to the very end. And if there are not enough seats, we have to come up with something with this.
