St. Saava of Storzhev Spring

  Ul. Suvorova/Reka Konchura.     22 Mar 2019
By following the road skirting around the monastery to the right of the entrance for a few hundred metres you will reach the spring of St.Saava of Storzhev. St. Saava was one of the first disciples of St. Sergius and helped run the monastery after Sergius died. Like his leader St. Saava
was an ascetic and prayed intensively. It is said that during one of his long praying sessions this spring appeared from the hill. Though considered religiously holy, due to local drainage the spring does not look immaculate. However, many people still come here to dunk themselves in the water and pray at the tiny wooden church next to it during their pilgrimage to Sergiev Posad.
