You can climb to choruses, steps are very high, there I was impressed with the picture of the descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles. And around the Temple a very quiet atmosphere. You can walk along the neat paths, and even to the hospital to visit the St. Cyril's monastery, admission free, regularly scheduled service, nicely decorated inside. And a small kiosk next to the monastery with a stunningly delicious cakes and hot drinks.
