(4.8/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Visited the monastery, not for the first time, venerated the relics Savva Storozhevsky, lit candles, notes, stood near monument of venerable Savva, bought in church shop gifts, have filed briefs and ordered functions. The territory is small, but beautiful, the last time was for guided tours, interesting. And go not far from Moscow.

  • Live in Zvenigorod. Often in the Savvino-storozhevsky monastery. A very bright place. Rich history, many legends. In recent years the monastery was renovated, landscaped park, around pools tea house, a children's playground. If this is the first time you come to this blessed place, make sure you take a guide. You hear a lot of interesting and can climb to the big Bell, boasting stunning views.
