Old monastery is situated in low land, what is not usual. It is very religious. Sometimes overcrowded with pilgrims. The walls, towers and gates are very interesting. Inside you can see a stroller belonged to Anna Ioannovna, Empress of Russia.

Beautiful colorful building complex, main parts are open to visitors. Some parts only after booking for it. Dress soberly to visit it: No sleeveless tops, no shorts or mini shirts. Women should cover their head. No entrance fee, donations for taking photos are welcome.

You do not need a tour guide to visit the monastery. But if you want to visit the farthest caves - you should book a tour for them.
