We visited this place during end of winters. Entire place was covered with snow and that was a charm in itself. But like it happens in Russia, there were quite less visitors during winters making it little more convenient in pile of snow. Yes, there...More

The visit to the monastery however was very expensive at 300 – they don’t accept foreign student cards. Frustrating dual pricing, you pay more but you get less since the only thing they translated in English are all the ‘do not …’ signs, but none...More

This is large in land size with a number of buildings to explore. In a number of places, there is no English signage which was discouraging. It is worth a visit to experience its history and expanse and variety of architecture. The museums here were...More

The monastery is beautifully peaceful and the church beautiful inside. If dodgy stairs don't bother you go up the bell tower. There is a 100 ruble fee but the money is going to a good cause and the views are worth the climb.
