  • In the town of Lagopodaro, about 15 minutes from the city is this female monastery. I was impressed by its organization and quality, cleanliness and order throughout the space. The church has icons of great artistic value and outside gardens and a spectacular view. It also has a place where icons and other religious objects are sold. Compulsory visit to get fresh air and inner peace.

  • At a distance see the large, relatively new monastery already lying. If you are dressed neatly (for the ladies there are skirts ready to pull over the trousers at the front door), the small church and the garden can be visited via a beautiful hall. The rest of the monastery is on the shop after forbidden area. The church is divided into two small intimate chapels, each with its own iconostas. Everything beautifully decorated.

  • I really liked. Precious frescoes, paintings. Unfortunately, we had little time since we arrived before closing. Infinitely kind and patient nuns, even the eldest spoke good English. Ladies, uncovered shoulders and short skirts are inappropriate outfit.
  • Very disappointing. The monastery is inaccessible. The car park is just after the monastery and there is plenty of space. On entry which is free suitable attire us required skirts for women a must. The only place in the monastery you are allowed to see is the church itself and the gift shop. Everything else is out if bounds. Only takes less than 10 minutes to visit usd can take up to an hour to get there.
