Explore the 15th-century cathedral, royal palace, and small church at Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery. Perched on a hill, the monastery was chosen as the suburban residence of Tsar Alexis in 1650. Look for the large belfry crowned with a clock tower, which was erected at the time. Inside the cathedral, you'll see 17th-century wall paintings, the five-tiered iconostasis, and remains of 15th-century frescoes in the altar. If you'd like a snack, the cafe near the spring offers a selection of pastries.

  • We love to come to the monastery. In the past few years, we must be prepared for a longer hike-foot parking from the monastery was moved to the embankment of the Moscow river and have to go up the Hill. Of course, people come a lot, so if there is a possibility to come on weekdays-do not miss it, the feeling of a real live history around and near, is staggering, when there is a large number of tourists. Progulâjte around the Monastery outside the walls-Bank is so high, the view fantastic. Path there, of course, for good weather, but there it is. In the days when a lot of people, there is an unexpected bonus-you can stick to the Guide and listen. Museums without a guide is not so interesting, just walk.

  • Beautiful well kept place with spectacular views. Here is the current monastery, but customers and members may feel completely comfortable. Here and museums, and many obihožennyh places to relax, there is a refectory, a pool, a lot of people come to the source for water. Huge territory, where you can just slowly walk. Also sold the monastery bakery in the big assortment, dairy products, honey (here has its own Apiary), kvass, etc.
