Getting to the monastery was not easy. In fact, only one semi-asphalt, semi-soil road leads to it, and even that road winds so that no navigator will help.

In general, they did not understand how they got there. It was Gods will.

Not a soul was found on the territory of the monastery. Whether it is closed, we thought it was a sinful deed, and our difficult path was in vain.

Our doubts were dispelled by the priest, who appeared out of nowhere.

– Hello, open a shop? – he asked us.

Seeing the misunderstanding on our faces, he asked again.

– Open the shop? Will you buy candles? He repeated, pointing to the church bench.

– It's good there, ”he said, but the climate is still the same.

– Not everyone can withstand nine months of cold weather. Whether it is with us. And the climate is good, and we have enough shrines of our own. What are the particles of the relics of St. Nicholas, and the particles of the belt of the Mother of God and the Cross of the Lord.

– Come into the temple, and see everything for yourself.

– Of course, you have to look. When else will we come here?

“You’ll come,” the father replied seriously and just as suddenly disappeared as he appeared.

How long we spent in the temple is hard to say. They put candles bought in a church shop.
