  • We visited an Orthodox monastery in the village of Manyava. There was an interesting excursion conducted by a monk. It turns out the monastery was reintroduced in 1611 by Iov Knyaginsky and operating until 1785, as well as the active Orthodox Cross-Vozdvodny men's monastery, opened in the same place in the 1990s uOC (KP). But the main attraction of this monastery is the "Blessed Stone", which, according to believers, is a place of prayer and purification from filth, it is the first dwelling - a monastery, where the "first apostles of the Carpathian Foothills" (Ivan Vagilevich) settled. The blessed stone is located almost a kilometer distance from the bridge on Mount Manyavka, next to the monastery lake. The stone resembles a giant cave or niche (a deepening of 10 by 3 m), a typical ancient dwelling of monks, a monastery. June 30, 2003 in the Manyavsky monastery was transferred to the miraculous icon of Our Lady of Manyavsky - The Deliverer of evil (18th. My colleagues and I attached to the icon. God forbid that peace will come to Ukraine.

  • My first visit to this unique place took place in 2010, and since then I do not close the Caledonian of the outgoing year until I go to this monastery. Not being a fan of faith, I can not understand what it attracts. Probably all together: ancient history, peace and tranquility, which here just hang in the air in any weather, the beauty of temples and nature. The monks here are very sympathetic to such as I, "Martians": patiently narrated, give explanations and advice. Every time touches to tears the story of a monk-a former Afghan warrior (buried here), who passed away from life very early and unexpected, but as if not gone. It is a pity that the waterfall closed the road, because it is really unsafe. But the holy water can be bought on the territory of the monastery. And also you will find a lean supper with monks.
