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.

  • Amazing atmosphere of serenity and goodness. Picture messes up only very notable cold war between Museum staff and brotherhood. Some Museum staff essentially lead excursions bareheaded is wrong. Especially cool where skit: plenty of flowers, Garden, Silver Creek and the font! Cool! And now the refectory rebuilt, all places lacking. Who have not yet visited the Savvino-storozhevsky monastery-highly recommend

  • We get here by public transport. The main bus that goes there, it turned out that runs once per hour. Good that we caught the bus and we drove fast. The place is very beautiful, there are two small museums (60rub), temples, Church benches and a place where you can dine in the tower. By the way an unusual place. Behind the wall of the monastery offers a very nice view of the river and city. Think summer is generally beautiful. And here we were standing at the bus stop back for a very long time and froze. So of course it is better to go on your own machine. Or take a taxi to the city will be one hundred rubles actually as much as you pay for two people on the bus.

  • There were 26 February. Just for the sake of the places worth visiting in Zvenigorod. Very atmospheric, lively place. Were 4:00 without excursions, will definitely return!
