Kizichesky Monastery

Kazan, Russia

Kizichesky Vvedensky Monastery is a small male monastery in Kazan. It was founded in 1691 by Adrian—the Moscow Patriarch, who until 1690 were the Kazan Bishop. The name Kazichesky means Holy Martyrs of Cyzicus. The monastery was devoted to the martyrs because parts of their relics were brought to the monastery—according to the wishes of Adrian. In the 1690s Vvedensky Cathedral and Vladimirskaya Church were built. Vvedensky Cathedral was destroyed during the Soviet epoch. Ilya Andreevich Tolstoy (the grandfather of Lev Tolstoy) is buried in the monastery.

Очень хороший монастырь, настоятель Игумен Пимен. Хор шикарный. Советую посетить монастырь, службы начинаются в 8-00 и 17-00. Есть церковная лавка, где можно купить свечи и подать записки, а также приобрести иконы и душеполезную литературу. При монастыре колокольня и два храма.

Монастырь был основан в 1691 году, атмосфера монастыря пропитана многовековыми молитвами православных христиан. Мужской хор монастыря очень красиво поет. Очень нравится ходить сюда на службы, проходят на одном дыхании, душа находит духовное равновесие и на время забывает о мирском. Утренние службы начинаются в 8.00, вечерние в 17.00.На территории монастыря есть церковная лавка, туалет. В лавке работает грубоватая женщина, не сдержанная, но , в монастырь, слава Богу, люди приходят ни к ней, и поэтому не стоит обращать на это внимание, а лишний раз смириться и помолиться за нее, ее Господь для исправления, может сюда привел.все в этом мире по промысла Божьему.

I was surprised when I find this monastery on the other side of park. It was like you find a little island of calm in the chaos of city.

Hluboká Castle

Hluboká Castle (Schloss Frauenberg) is considered one of the most beautiful castles in the Czech Republic. In the second half of the 13th century, a Gothic castle was built at the site. During its history, the castle was rebuilt several times. It was first expanded during the Renaissance period, then rebuilt into a Baroque castle at the order of Adam Franz von Schwarzenberg in the beginning of the 18th century. It reached its current appearance during the 19th century, when Johann Adolf II von Schwarzenberg ordered the reconstruction of the castle in the romantic style of England's Windsor Castle.

The Schwarzenbergs lived in Hluboká until the end of 1939, when the last owner (Adolph Schwarzenberg) emigrated overseas to escape from the Nazis. The Schwarzenbergs lost all of their Czech property through a special legislative Act, the Lex Schwarzenberg, in 1947.

The original royal castle of Přemysl Otakar II from the second half of the 13th century was rebuilt at the end of the 16th century by the Lords of Hradec. It received its present appearance under Count Jan Adam of Schwarzenberg. According to the English Windsor example, architects Franz Beer and F. Deworetzky built a Romantic Neo-Gothic chateau, surrounded by a 1.9 square kilometres English park here in the years 1841 to 1871. In 1940, the castle was seized from the last owner, Adolph Schwarzenberg by the Gestapo and confiscated by the government of Czechoslovakia after the end of World War II. The castle is open to public. There is a winter garden and riding-hall where the Southern Bohemian gallery exhibitions have been housed since 1956.
