At all times, the desire to bow to places where the Lord and His saints lived, taught and accepted burial, attracted people to pilgrimage. For some, a pilgrimage is a way of life. But it is not uncommon for tourists who visit monasteries to taste “local color”, come to faith at the touch with living Orthodoxy. The flow of pilgrims, especially from Russia, is endless; The desire to touch a different world, which really exists both in eternity, and in physical space and time, is enormous. Different people, different fates – but we do not know a single person who went on a pilgrimage, would return with nothing.
