This monastery a little distance out of the city is a beautiful and quiet place. The church is a great sight, with its distinct architecture and the quiet low-light interior contains the typical Orthodox church interior with ikons, illustrations and artefacts.

I briefly visited this monastery with my husband and I very much enjoyed walking the grounds, looking at the scenic view of the city bellow. The monastery itself us gorgeous and has some 500 years old decor and ceiling paintings that must be seen.
