Astonishing place full of beautiful architecture of Russian Orthodox churches. It is about 60 kilometres from Moscow, but if you have time and means of transportations it is a nice place to go.

Walking through this religious compound is quite an astonishing experience. The monastery offers view of beautiful architectures and gardens. I overheard the sensational chanting which gave me such a great joy. This place is a real find for me.
