  • I'm not religious. But this monastery is worth a visit. The best part is the museum inside. It is completely free. Though there are only limited rooms that you can see because most doors are closed...

  • Off the beaten track to be sure. Monastery which contains only four monks one of whom we encountered. Truly remarkable history enjoyed it every minute.
  • The church is being repaired or renovated and you can't get to the icon of the Virgin Mother but it is still worth the time to visit and see the museum and the exterior. DO NOT TRUST THE DIRECTIONS GIVEN BY THE MAP APP. It leads to a dead end road along a very narrow and dangerous road.
