Easy to find, near the border/ River bank . Beautiful ikons and paintings around the walls and window paintings. Spectacular Golden althars. Women needs to have skarf over head when visiting.

Magnificient surronuding nature, very old and sacred place with ancient oaktrees, sacreda among the pagans. The nunnery, which was also the serving place of Partiarch Aleksius of Russia during Soviet period. Sacred spring, which is believed to heal people.

I visited the nunnery (dependance?) in Kuremäe, which doesn't have its own entry on Tripadvisor. Very special and very quite place, which impresses by its calmness and beauty (see images)
