Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery, Zvenigorod

4.8
Explore the 15th-century cathedral, royal palace, and small church at Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery. Perched on a hill, the monastery was chosen as the suburban residence of Tsar Alexis in 1650. Look for the large belfry crowned with a clock tower, which was erected at the time. Inside the cathedral, you'll see 17th-century wall paintings, the five-tiered iconostasis, and remains of 15th-century frescoes in the altar. If you'd like a snack, the cafe near the spring offers a selection of pastries.

  • If you are driving-with parking no problem, there is a huge parking space between the entrance to the monastery and the source almost in the middle. The monastery itself is very beautiful, on the territory visited the exhibition of icons (180 ₽ for three) very beautiful temple, to the right of the entrance path to the well, it was interesting to visit and the cave Savava Delicious cheese bread and kvass (those who are driving better to take from the cathedral:))

  • Savvino-Storazhevsky Monastery was founded in the XIV century, under the town of Zvenigino on the high bank of the Moscow River on the mountain Storet. It was founded by Reverend Savva, it is possible to walk from the city, which is 4 km. You can certainly get there! But walking is more interesting. The road runs along the high bank of the Moskva River, open spaces and beauty. The monastery itself has been restored, many open houses, there is a museum. I work church shops, where a lot of interesting literature and books.. You can go to church, observing certain rules: women in skirts and hats, without very short skirts, men without shorts. The monastery is acting!! In the Proiantskaya Tower-monastic bread and a loaf. Peace and quiet, despite the numerous tourists, the break-up and just fans to walk...
