Monastery in Tikhvin
went to Tikhvinsky Ouspensky Monastery 120 miles from St Petersburg.
The monastery was closed in 1924 and reopened in 1995, now under
restoration. This church is the place where the oldest Russian icon -
Tikhvin Icon of Theotokos - resided for 600 years (!) and then
disappeared. I made this picture from the bells tower.
