Nikolo-Ugreshsky monastery in Dzerzhinsky
Nikolo-Ugreshsky monastery was founded in 1380 year Grand Prince of Dmitry Donskoy for the place where the icon of Saint Nicholas. The word "ugresha" - warmed - in the name of the monastery indicates the words of the great Prince, warmed with the joy of portents of the appearance of St. Nicholas, when the Prince stopped here with his army on the way to Kulikovo field. The monastery was repeatedly ruined and rebuilt. Recent work on restoration of buildings and internal painting commenced in 1990 and ended in 2009. At the monastery, outside its territory, pilgrims, managed the pilgrimage service of the monastery.
There is a bakery at the monastery where you can buy bread and pastries in the kiosk at the entrance.
And what impression was at the Christmas service when she saw it in all its glory! The iconostasis is simply extraordinary!
Separately recommend the hotel super economy class across the street. On the phone you will be deceived in relation to the workload, ask for a room on as many places as you need to, accused of lying when you answer "everyone is busy, pick a room with 10 places and pay the remaining 9, and then sat down next to someone) , promise to stay "with relatives" in the Dzerzhinsk and to release all the acquaintances and the Internet. Grandmother dark, tenacious, but give up.
The best monastery, which was. Not procset to help "to the glory of God" as in Sarov, not race walking and people with cameras even s lawns (and plate stand). Inadequate money in the temples were not seen by me.
