  • For a long time, since Soviet times, dream to visit here, but somehow in the confusion of affairs did not work! And here's the unity day finally visited his tour. Despite the snowy weather and light Frost impressions weight! Unusual monastery with interesting history and beautiful architecture! From any buildings or subject and blows this (not "novodel'noj") of old! In the Cathedral of the Nativity of the mother of God is a very beautiful painting and frescoes. Necessarily worship the relics of the founder of the monastery of St. Sava! In Caricynyh houses exhibitions and expositions of the Zvenigorod exhibited historical-architectural and Art Museum. The guides are very interesting to tell about the history of the monastery and life of Tsar Alexei mikhailovich. In one of the halls of the exhibition presented "two worlds Russian icon painting of the 17th century". In Proviantskoj Tower open shop monastery bread, where the sale of different kinds of bread, buns, bagels, pies and other pastries. Be sure to try! I would like to come here again in the spring or summer: they say that here is a very beautiful groomed hands of monks and parishioners.
