  • Not the first time we arrive in Godenovo to venerate the cross. This is a very fertile place! We always arrive by car, there are walking and sightseeing buses. The temple is located in a fairly remote location, the road to the temple is not perfect, but quite respectable, we on a tiny car winter passed without problems. Next to the temple car park, the area around designed for visiting, have a bounce back and eat. Around the stunning nature, silence, appeasement. I highly recommend visiting this place. Here you are inspired of Russian nature, feel their connection with the history of their land, and most importantly, it's an unusual thrill from contact to the shrine and a special State of mind.

  • For 10 years there have been very big changes: in Godenovo there are new buildings, playground in front of the temple, rich Church bench. Pointers have emerged on the road. Sanctified monument Serafim Sarovskomu. In the Church of St. John Chrysostom about cross appeared duty Kazak and therefore it is always possible to kiss the feet of the Lord, not closed. Don't forget to go to the next room, where, too, have preserved a wonderful antique part of the temple. Not far from Godenova (there's a pointer) to my eyes restored monastery, which before the revolution was staged at the place where in the middle of the 14 century found the true cross. After the revolution he was completely destroyed. Under the leadership of father Boris it was rebuilt, becoming more beautifully decorated, is on a remarkable high place. In it are very friendly people, there is a chapel grocery store with good dairy products of own production. And everywhere, people in cars, where and when you arrived. On weekdays the pilgrims little but feels that this is not a casual tourists and being seen by believers. The life of father Boris-special impression. He died before 50 years of age and, I think, his works deserve it remembered. Correctly write in the feedback-very namolennoe place. Cross is preserved in dashing hour, that in itself is amazing, now restored and is located in the Godenovo six months, six months in the monastery. However, I was particularly impressive, virtually uninhabited desert on both sides of the road on the way to this holy place, meet only sporadic dachas or dilapidated village. Although it is known that at the beginning of the 20 century, there lived a lot of people. And it's sad-near Moscow as all became extinct ...
