Trinity-Scanov monastery and Scanov caves

Located in an ancient city Narovchat in the northwest of Penza region, the Troice-Skanov monastery has been based in 17 century as Orthodoxy advanced post on the earths of pagans. On a place of the destroyed constructions were erected new, more beautiful and perfect. When you are in the Penza region, obligatory find time to visit the Scanov caves. Why? Because you will see nothing analogous anywhere in Russia! Monkshermits escaping from worldly fuss were lodging here. Having hollowed cells in the rock, they offered up their prayers to God, in absolute silence and solitude. These narrow monastic cells are located on the sides of the long corridors gofng deep into the ground. Multi-layered underground passages last for the distance of over 600 meters, by length surpassing caves of Kiev-Cave Lavra. And how a great number of discoveries wait in the galleries blocked by obstructions! Everyone who visited the Scanov caves marks an unusually fresh air in the vaults — this is one more riddle of this surprising monastery.

Address: Penza region, Narovchatovsky district village Narovchat. Ph.:+7 (841-63) 2-19-94.
