  • The monastery of light, air, some joyful and very very quiet. I noticed that all the nunneries quieter men-can because less. Completely no pathos. Each nun is busy all the time but always bee Aki will respond to your request for help. The food is simple, but what do you want from a monastery? Olivier? Although it happens and Olivier. Flowers different-a lot of them and all in a somewhat-but everything is explained by the fact that it is one of the few not obshhezhitejnyh monasteries. Each nun itself provides and maintains its facilities.

  • If someone just wants to see a church in Podil district, then it should be from outside the. of the many impressive green dome and the peace that it has within the enclosure of the monastery, but it really is the most beautiful in the area, but none of the many rival in Kiev. Perhaps only the St. Sofia frescos liked better, very tasteful, engaging and well balanced throughout the Interior. Therefore, it is forbidden to take pictures within pictures we find it, we need to look in our own eyes! On Kontraktova square, together with the monastery and the 1-2-hour program and helps us get closer to a full understanding of Kiev.

  • In the heart of Podol, near andreevsky descent, crouched Florovsky svyato-voznesensky female monastery, one of the many in Kiev, but far from the last. The monastery occupies a fairly large area and consists of several churches, monastic cells, Bell Tower, etc. most of the territory closed to normal visitors, in spite of this, there is also an open part of that show. When you get to the territory of the monastery, there is a feeling that he is somewhere far beyond the big city-silence, birds sing. The biggest interest is the Church of the resurrection, built in Ukrainian style and decorated with beautiful paintings as inside. and outside. As in most temples, take pictures inside is prohibited.
