Novospasskiy monastery is interesting because in the basement of thecathedral is the tomb of the Romanovs, the last kings of Russia. In addition, the monastery has a miraculous icon of the Mother of God "Vsetsaritsa", which helps in case of cancer

We visit here about twice a year, usually on a Sunday afternoon. Very meaningful. There is a special icon area for cancer victims and you can pray for the souls of those departed, for those who are fighting cancer, or for yourself.
