Wonderful from city walk for those wanting exercise. Your effort will be rewarded by 2 lovely churches and city views. Proper dress required for entry. Masses are still said here. Lovely gardens kept by nunnery.

Looks interesting as it is pretty real and does not have any glamorous tourist oriented decor. It gives a realistic culture experience and at the same time nice looking, well looked after. The priests and church stuff are a bit cranky though, but they are cranky in lots of local churches:-)

Nice architecture, only saw it from the outside. It's very close to Belaya Besedka, the entire area is lovely for walking around and taking photos.

A nice drive out of town, onto a beautiful hillside that overlooks the city. The architecture
is fabulous and the setting is perfect.

Friendly staff, with some English spoken. The gift shop is pretty extensive too.

Felt very welcome.

Visited this monastery by taking a taxi and taxi waited during our relatively short visit. Beautiful well kept place but two of the churches were closed due to something occurring and was not allowed to climb up bell tower as no one was available to accompany us. I will have to come back sometime.

Visited here many times, most recent in Dec 2016, This is one of the far located monasteries on a hill, you can get a grandiose view on NOT only the mountains and buildings in the distance, but also the fresh air on the mountains. You'll love it.
