 Monasteries of the Kaluga Region

This scenario includes visits to several Orthodox monasteries for which the Kaluga region is famous. Absolutely all travelers may not know about them yet, but these monasteries have long been a pilgrimage destination for many Orthodox believers. The hotels are located in picturesque and protected natural places. It is a national park Ugra, which is a natural heritage of Russia. For us, a visit to these places will be both an educational journey and a stroll through amazing natural places. And instead of visiting a cafe, you can try the real monastery cuisine in the refectory. All this will surely leave a lot of pleasant memories. Don't forget to take a photo as a memento!
