For those interested in monasteries/convents this please is beautiful

We took the boat from the embankment (There is a water-taxi style boat that is extremely cheap to take the ride out to Tolga) and it was a nice cruise, followed by an absolutely beautiful church grounds. Keep in mind, this is an active religious site, so proper attire is required. Men should wear pants (not shorts) and women should have a headscarf over their hair and have on a modest skirt/dress (they do have wraps available for free at the entrance) The grounds are absolutely beautiful, and there are services to attend if you arrive early enough in the day (I believe they close around 5 or 6) There is also a little shop where you can get church make priyanik and a birch-juice drink that are unique and quite good. If religious history is your thing, you simply must go here.

Had a free weekend in Yaroslavl during a business visit. Took the boat to the convent. Nice ride, enjoying the nature. At the end, spend few hours in the convent and visited nice churches in the complex. Impressive with a lot of history.

This is an old convent, that was restored in late 1990-s. Many people used to come here on different religious holidays. One can find here nice churches, ponds, cedar grove.

Fascinating

Been twice to this place. Came back on our occasion to Yaroslavl' only to get some more from the local bakery. Don't miss it - the monastery store sells amazing things. Their pryaniks were defenitely worth coming again. It is indeed a very impressive place located outside Yaroslavl', beatiful views and very neat and gentle inside. We will go there again if we find ourselves around the city again.

Holy and fascinating place

A lot to say. There are no words to convey the feeling and energy of this sacred place. Wait and immerse yourself in a miraculous icon of the Virgin.

Holy place
The most beautiful monastry in this region. White swans and black swans are playing in the pond. Very famous Tolgaski icon you can see. Calm and pure atmosphere. You can say you've been in Russian monastry if you've been here any once. You can feel satisfaction mentally in your mind when you step out from this holy place.
