This tour is an excursion to the Raif monastery of the mother of God, which is located 30 km from Kazan in a protected forest, on the shore of a charmingly beautiful lake.
The monastery was founded in the 17th century. Its architectural ensemble, one of the most magnificent on the Middle Volga, was formed over the centuries. The main relic of the monastery is the miracle-working Georgian image of the most Holy Theotokos (17th century). The monastery has a water source, consecrated by the Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia.
