  • Svyato-uspenska Sviatohirsk Lavra-one of the three major Orthodox relics of Ukraine. The monastery was founded in the 13th century on a high Bank of the Seversky Donets River Cretaceous. All mountain riddled with labyrinth and cells (open for visits).

  • Interesting beautiful blessed place. The old monastery situated on the chalk hills of the river Dniester. When you look at Lavra from the opposite bank of the river Nistru shrine very interesting contrasts with the Soviet statue of Artyom at the dais. With the location of the statue of great panoramic views. When coming to the complex from afar and see the statue it may seem that under her flowing mountain streams, but simply chalk vein. Looks interesting. Very interesting walk on territory. Essentially this huge Church sanctuary Chapel. Upstairs you can mouth inside erected a wooden monastery. Also on the right side of the laurels is cloisters the monks of the hermits who lived decades insulated from everything. Lavra continually refurbish. There is an opportunity to take a tour and explore the underground Church aisles, see the entire underground churches. But just don't forget that tours are not spend on Orthodox holidays. Don't mess up your clothes with hot wax. On the territory of the monastery there is a historical Museum, but only by taking a tour. A wonderful and mesmerizing game ringer in the Bell Tower. You can catch it before the service. Metallica nervously smokes on the sidelines. You can buy a recording of ringing as well as on the proticopolozhnom shore have a souvenir market, there are excellent products from Juniper (sellers claim that this sandal). If you decide to swim, be very careful because for a very strong. Naschityvajte. Don't forget dress code (Temple garment)

  • Clearly we must remember where to go and observe the requirements of ... I'm not a stickler for strict dresses. .. but respect above all. Shorts and pants we tried to go to the territory. But just below the parish there. There you could go. Father made us a comment so we were raised in the Church. And without criticism. If you want to walk around the shrines. .. It is not difficult to observe their rules

  • Great place. Shame about being under the reign of Russian Church. The security of the Moscow Patriarchate Cathedral today is represented by the Cossacks, separatists in the east of Ukraine.
  • COOL
  • Before the war, visited this wonderful place on 3-4 twice a year. A lot of good memories, it's a pity that now far live. Guard (kazachki) often behave very rude on (mainly concerns the dress code), this is not good. In the rest of the prelestnejshee place at any time of the year! Hope is still here!

  • Protection of the Cathedral of the Moscow Patriarchate today as before is under the Mission of Cossacks which, in turn, was the dominant movement of separatism in Eastern Ukraine. This phenomenon is at least strange in a country that leads the war against a neighbouring State aggressor.
