St. Nicholas Borok Hermitage and Nun Nina.
According to the legend, Dmitry Pozharsky with his squad stopped near Kholui, in the town of Borok, and vowed to courageously endure all the difficulties and dangers in the upcoming campaign, to defend Moscow and save the fatherland. In memory of this event, Pozharsky vowed to build a monastery in the name of St. Nicholas on this place. In 1650, according to the will of Dmitry Pozharsky, his son Ivan built a wooden monastery in the town of Borok. 100 years later, a stone monastery was built on this spot, which has survived to this day.
Abbot Joasaph (Vishnyakov) and the Ferapontov Monastery.
At the end of the 15th century, one of the first stone churches of the Russian North – the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Mother of God was built in the monastery. It is the main attraction of the Ferapontov Monastery. It has preserved unique frescoes of 1502, created by the famous Old Russian icon painter Dionisius and his sons. The frescoes cover the entire inner surface of the church with a total area of about 600 square meters. Wall paintings were restored in the XX century and in 1974 the Museum of Dionisius’s frescoes was opened. In October 2018, by order of the Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church in the Vologda Diocese, the Ferapontov Monastery of the Nativity of the Mother of God was brought back to life.

Northwest Karelia is located on the latitude of the Onega Bay of the White Sea near the Finnish border. The roads are terrible. The nature is magnificent. Forests, lakes and beautiful rivers. March is not springyet here. There are snow-covered fir-trees and a cold gusty wind.
In the history of Canada, the Slavic immigration at the turn of the XIX – XX centuries was of great importance. The country authorities did their best to attract as many immigrants who were familiar with agriculture for the development of virgin lands as possible.
Perhaps there are exceptions. Too lazy to look for them. But on the streets of Yelets it suddenly occurred to me that Russian towns with short and expressive names have their own unique provincial aura.
We have been photographing churches and monasteries from the bird's-eye view using a drone since 2009. This video contains the best photos of our collection
According to the legend, Georgia is the apostolic lot of the Mother of God.
In 337, due to St. Nino, Equel-to-the-Apostles, who baptized Iberia, Christianity became the state religion of Georgia.
