This monastery has seen many in its lifetime: holy ascetics and Tatar khans, Russian Tsars and the Makaryevskaya fair. It was threatened with floods and fires, and then years of disbelief. Now the life in the monastery has been revived, and a lot of people are flooding this place — after all, the monastery stands on Mother Volga.

A lot of people feel here peace and calmness thakns to the great power of this holy place and St. Makariy — one of the mostly honorable Russian saints.
The monastery has a great history dating from 1435. The main cathedral of the monastery displays frescoes from the 17th century. Pilgrims prove that the paintings on the walls of the temple have become brighter in recent years!
