Dear pilgrims and tourists!

The Chernigovsky Skete welcomes you in our cosy monastery unique in central Russia for its hand-dug monk cells and prayer caves. Since 1990 it has been under restoration thanks to state help and parishioner donations. After its blossom in the early 20th century the Skete is regaining its status of an Orthodox shrine and architectural gem.

We’re only 15 min east of the Holy Trinity Sergius Lavra. You take a train/bus from Moscow to Sergiev Posad and then bus 38 to the Povorot stop. Now about 10 monks live in the Skete famous for its everyday unction sacrament with anointing. Pilgrims come here to bow to St. Barnabas’s relics and 2 miracleous Chernigovskaya icon copies.

The Skete was founded in 1847 by holy fool Philippushka as a cave department of the Gethsemane Skete whose walls still stand opposite. In this picturesque forest Gethsemane hermits sought seclusion from passions. Blessed Philipp’s 14 partners dug cells and a cave temple in 1851 to become the Archangel Michael Cave Temple. They made a wooden blockhouse around the central prayer cave with its window top above the ground. The walls later became of stone, but it made underground life even tougher. The Chernigovskaya icon of Godmother donated the next year brought many miracles by healing the paralyzed, leprous and possessed. From then on it has symbolized and guarded our monastery. In the late 19th century the Skit became a top Orthodox monastery during Rev. Barnabas of Gethsemane who hosted people all over Russia with consolation. He took on serving sufferers and foretelling their future. This monastic elder also foresaw the Bolshevick terror and even the Russian Orthodox Church revival. A cathedral painting features Tsar Nicholas II with his family at a confession to Elder Barnabas. Some suggest the emperor took blessing for a martyr’s death. In 1922 the Skete was shut down and used as a prison, nursing home and boarding school serially. Only in 1990 was it returned to the Lavra.

Excursions are available 10 am – 4 pm daily with travel guides on duty. 40-min excursions revise the Chernigovsky Cathedral and most of all caves with a holy spring. Its water once fed the underground monks, now it heals sufferers. A tall, 5-tier belfry was built in the late 19th century, shortly after the 5-dome Chernigovsky Cathedral which replaced the old small wooden church without crushing the caves. These 2 main buildings feature the pseudo-Russian red-brick style. Off your excursion you can buy souvenirs in the church store and snack at the café with traditional Russian cuisine – kvas, cakes, honey…
