(4.8/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • The monastery at any time of the year leaves a good impression. Smooth, quiet worship in everyday life, a good book and an icon shop. In proviantskoj Tower as enter the monastery to the right, on the first floor-a variety of monastic baking on 2 and 3 floor Café where you can have a meal in the beautiful surroundings, surrounded by stained-glass Windows and massive furniture made of natural wood.

  • Walk to the outside and inside. About temples long I won't tell-usually go here or who knows everything, or those who still. I will only say that it is better to take the tour, you can order on the site or in advance online or by phone-see photo outside-fisheries and the well of Saint Sava. But water can collect inside the monastery. If you forgot a bottle of holy water-in the monastery shop you can buy bottles. Those who know-were carrying empty 5 l, but still there is no queue. There are excellent cafes can take soup, fresh salads, sandwiches, sbiten. Buy a home breads, amazing bread shop here! There is no pointer, she in a corner near the exit in proviantnoj Tower. Cafe there.
