  • We all had a wonderful experience at the monastery. Be sure to get a tour from one of the monks. There was a lot of information imparted on the history of the order and their "sisu".
  • Nice place to visit for those who are interested in the historical side of orthodox christianity. All in all, this place is a bit touristy. There is a huge gift shop, a restaurant and a changing themed display. The monastery sells their own berry wines and licqueurs, honey and various other goods. It is a bit unclear how much of these are actually manufactured on the premises. Guides are very helpful and friendly.
