  • The trip was simply because the soul demanded. And demanded in vain. They say that in the Monastery everything is happening exactly the way you want to. Despite the 7:00 road, and sleep 3:00 rise in 5 am, we have everything, even things that are not planned. Visited service (5-7.20 am) Priklonilis′ to the miraculous icon (lower it to 6 am). We initially did not know exactly where she is. A huge turn to it. Time to stand near the icons do not give at all. Kissed and the next. Accidentally hit on the feast of St. Job. Beautiful stroke Hit icons and candles. But the most important thing is that after visiting only the beautiful impressions suggest, especially if asks the soul.

  • The monastery is an easy day trip from Lviv, and if you were with your own transportation you can combine your visit to the beautiful Kremenetes, a few kilometres further East. The place itself is really spectacular, elevated and easily distinguishable from the surrounding countryside, with Golden domes that rise and give a deep sense of sacredness. The oldest churches are essential, while the more modern concrete, still under construction, helps to interpret the current vision of religiosity, as well as the multitudes that flock to the monastery, crowding in the most sacred places of the site. Appropriate clothing is required to enter (women may have borrowed scarf at the entrance), and in one of the buildings is a soup kitchen that offers good food at reasonable prices. Not to be missed!
