  • Came in Saturday and landed on an evening service in the main temple. The first thing that caught my eye-more faith in parishioners than in Moscow. More fullness of meaning, a sense of involvement in the action. The territory clean, accurate, all in stone. Most of the buildings have been restored. You can see that the financial support is highly palpable. There is a sense that Tikhon of Zadonsk collects pilgrims from all over Russia, and not only. If we discard religious component, the monastery is similar to other developed places of worship, specialized in search of workers. A kind of mechanism. Debugged and working properly. Especially the contrast in comparison with other Orthodox temples Zadonska, staying in the more neglected.

  • This monastery is obviously the best part of a number of monasteries in the rayon. The Church is large and provided with a magnificent iconostasis. Right opposite the plant, on the main road, a good restaurant in which is good and good for German conditions you can eat.

  • Pretty big monastery. Recently almost completely refurbished-refurbished, over-styled, painted. How to write "hristiannen′kih" sites-beauty ... In General, not straining, although with art point of view nothing unique, despite the cumbersome scope cathedrals, of itself does not present-another variation of architecture. For the 19 century Tone was something like Tsereteli to our days-it projects (tone) built the model churches throughout Russia. Saint Vladimir Cathedral Zadonskom monastery is no exception. Yes, great. Yes, prilizannyj. But very boring and insipid in the architectural sense. Like other construction-except that the Bell Tower of the beginning of 19 century. Unpleasantly amazed that the whole area of the monastery from the entrance from the side of a Moscow Highway and the Cathedral and near it ENTIRELY filled trays with a variety of "cerkovnostâmi". Straight Bazaar! This is in addition to what was immediately built and modern indoor stalls with the same, which totally destroy historic views of the monastery, albeit 19 century! You can see the monastery wants to cash in on the pilgrims and tourists, otherwise there wouldn't be such an obsession! By the way, souvenirs in the form of literature about the monastery in him not so much-just one book da nevrazumitel′nyh couple of booklets. True there are magnets ... Better to buy souvenirs in the Museum of local lore just diagonally across from the entrance to the monastery. In the Centre stands a monument to St. Tikhon Zadonskomu, ABSOLUTELY no different (in the general sense, not in detail) from Voronezh monument Mitrofan Voronežskomu. And no wonder-sculptor-one-Dikunov ... Once an idea invented-and went to punch ... Their family zagromozdila your creations the entire Voronezh, now and beyond, is already active "badly affected". I have mixed feelings-outside zalakirovannost′û and well-groomed, yes given the spirit of "Commerce", "screaming" in this monastery, is lost somehow its spiritual component. While in the evening, in the dark and under illumination, when trays are finally all turned, the monastery is very good! Visit its certainly worth. Especially for believers-power Tikhon there after all. Art lovers this Nunnery, in my opinion, not very interesting. It's my purely personal opinion! Ask "hristiannejših" citizens angry messages-precedents already have-I don't write-I am an unbeliever and the purely secular! Monasteries and temples and visit very much, but as a connoisseur of art and history. If you need faith-please go, pray, prikladyvajtes′, head and other and other ... But their opinions I express will, how would you there it didn't like! Freedom of speech we have nobody!)))
