  • When rotation occurs at the top of the cliff, as if growing from her temple-breathtaking. Is this human creation? Impression amplifies leaky at the bottom of the river. On the right bank of the Seversky Donets Basin right on the mountain is Holy assumption Sviatohirsk Lavra is a monastery that is under the control of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Moscow Patriarchate (this is important). In hoi polloi Svyatogorsk. A rich history, dating back to the 16th century. This is truly a holy place! We have visited here a few times, but it was in the distant year of 1993. With the blessing of Nicholas protoireja, we visited every corner of the monastery. Visited monasteries, caves, Chapel of St Andrew the Apostle on a cliff top, Nicholas Church on the Holy rock, cave Church, the uspensky Cathedral, etc. From the laity, hardly anyone can pohvastovat'sja that visited all places and corners of this monastery. Currently very difficult times for Ukraine, fratricidal war. For the monastery is too tyzhjoloe test. I'd like to see how it has changed over the years as vostanovili and as restored, but now when rushing the negativity towards all Russian, is unlikely in the near future.

  • Was on holiday icons of the mother of God of Svyatogorsk. Chime bells, choir of the monastery, the abundance of flowers around-it is simply unforgettable! It's a must see is the spirit of Svyatogorsk!

  • A very spiritual place. Recommend to the caves. Even just sit inside. There is a Zoo, small children will appreciate. Priest tolerate children if they cry. It is said to tap the icon. Elsewhere may be asked to go outside.

  • When it began in the early 1990s, it was good, now-horror, only nature is good, and the rest of Armagedon goes, who can escape.

  • In a lifetime of smiles a lot less than in the photos. All property of a refugee is placed in checkered bag and pram-like a child without it? Even in the monastery fed people who come here, and a lot of them. The food is very modest, but all prepared very carefully, very humanly, with care. Monks at the mercy of your exam passed. And we? And I? Now, everyone should help. Are welcome here and a pack of rice and a jar of jam, of course, money. Let's help at least one.

  • In svyatogorsk Lavra and the caves of the monastery was still in school, 15 years ago! I do not know how there now, but judging by the photos of tourists, still remained. The gypsum Caves monastery necessarily go. I really enjoyed and I possibly come here again.

  • Great place. The atmosphere of the Lavra pacifies. The combination of the forest with its ancient oak trees, coniferous and deciduous breeds of trees and rivers creates a pleasant climate and beautiful nature. Always pulls back here again. Great revenge getaway from the big city.
