We offer you an amazing journey. You can be convinced of the correctness of N.M. Karamzin, who wrote that "the road from there to Moscow is the most pleasing to the eye, mountainous, but what views ..."

More than six centuries have passed since the time when Abbot Savva froze, fascinated by the beauties that opened before him, who came here to found the saint Abode. A lot of water has flowed under the bridge since then, but this picture has changed little: the banks of the Moskva River are still picturesque, the villages run away into the distance, and the air filled with the aromas of pine needles intoxicates with a special freshness.

Those who ascend from the river bank to Mount Storozha, a view of the majestic walls and towers of the ancient Savvino-Storozhevsky monastery opens up. Tsars, patriarchs, and common people have flocked to the shrines stored here for a long time. And above the Zvenigorod Kremlin, here called Gorodok, there is another beautiful architectural monument - the Assumption Cathedral, which has brought to us the works of the Monk Andrei Rublev.

To see the shrines of Palestine and Jerusalem, to feel the authenticity of the Holy Land, you can simply go with us to Istra near Moscow and visit the grandiose monastic complex of New Jerusalem, famous for the fact that it exactly repeats the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. But, although it was built as a copy of an oriental, foreign church, the cathedral retains the image of the Russian church. Thus, Patriarch Nikon embodied the age-old dream of people about a distant paradise: to be transported from snow-covered Russia to the distant Holy Land.
