There are quite a few painted monasteries in this area, but this was one of my favourites, although one side of thechurch is now virtually devoid of pictures due to weather getting to the images. We were shown around by a nun with very good english and shown through the paintings on the inside and outside of the church. It really is a very impressive sight considering the length of time that the church has stood and the vibrancy the depictions of the seige of constantinople, the apostles and the last judgement retain. There is a small museum as well with a book donated by Catherine the Great of Russia. Still a working convent the nuns are very good at showing visitors around although I wouldn't cross them!
