Entrance into Savva monastery

Entrance into Savva monastery

Lets me to continue the tour to the beautiful town in Moscow Rigion, Zvenigorod. You have already seen interesting churches on the way to this old, famous town: the church of the Savior in Ubory, the church of Transfiguration in Bolshie Vyazemy, so now it is time to see one of the main attractions in Zvenigorod - the St. Savva Storozhevsky monastery, which was founded by the pupil of Great St. Sergius of Radonezh (who founded famous Holy-Trinity Lavra in Sergiev Posad).

The St. Savva Storozhevsky monastery has rectangular shape and situated high above the confluence of two rivers - The Moskva and Storozhki - in wooden uplands. On this picture I wanted to show you the entrance into Savva's monastery. Above the gates you can see the icon of Christ the Savior and sign on Russian "Christos Voskrese!" (Eng: Christ Risen!). When I was there with my client from Canada in May, it was about two weeks after the Russian Easter...

Recently, I invited my mother and my mother-in-law (both 80 years old) to visit me in Moscow. I was wondering how I could show them the city as they both would not be able to walk more than 100 m. But then I met Arthur and suddenly solutions for everything were in place - a car, wheel chairs, nice tours and - most importantly - a guy with a big heart! My mothers were so happy and I have no words to express my gratitude to Arthur for all his patience and kindness with these old ladies. Thank you, Arthur! The world is nicer with people like you!
