  • On the territory, as I read before coming to the monastery, only organized groups, but we came-gates open, gone. On the territory of the group walked, apparently to get lucky at the right time. While we were in the temple, the group left. The gate was already closed. Walked through the territory in silence, nobody expelled. It was opened in November winter the lower church, by placing the temple at the bottom, without Windows, creates a sense of intimacy, comfort, warmth, dushvnosti, namolennosti. Out of the temple with the warmth in your soul. On the territory of stands stand with very cute woman saleswoman. While buying her delicious patties and sprinkled talked with us, she told me where to go to shop and what to see from the souvenirs. To reach the monastery 30 minutes by bus from the center of Vologda. Photo schedule there and enclose

  • This discovery in our visit to Vologda Oblast became this monastery. Below the reviews wrote that it was "normal". Disagree with this opinion. Firstly, it is very picturesquely situated. Especially it should be noticeable in summer, but in winter it looks impressive. Secondly, its fortifications worthy of special attention. They are not as impressive as the Kirillo-belozerskii monastery, but also impressed the fortress outpost. Moreover, the walls of the monastery is open even in winter. Thirdly, in he also causes a feeling of coziness. It is compact enough, but inside the pond, fit various monastic buildings, wooden church, the monastic grounds. Although not a religious man, I can say that the monastery creates a feeling of peacefulness and space has a special energy. Fourthly, the personality of Dmitry Prilutsky interesting not only for Orthodox believers, but also from the point of view of people who are interested in history. Part of the territory, that allows to evaluate the main attractions of the monastery is completely free of charge. Another part, where the monks and is the seminary is not available for visiting. There is a monastery bakery, where you can buy snack and Church shop, where you can warm up. A taxi to the monastery from the center of Vologda can be reached within 200 rubles (15 minutes) or by public transport (more on the website of the monastery).
