  • It was somewhat anticlimactic to see this small church after having seen the magnificent monastery. The church wasn't open so it was only possible to see the outside, which was really nothing that...  more »
  • closed (most times!) not extraordinary from outside, but nice park nearby with waterfall and snack bar  more »

  • Very beautiful. Almost timeless. Very touristy. Good place to find souvenirs.
  • In New Athos there were several times, but only having delved into The Istria of Abkhazia learned that it was the temple of Simon Canonite, the 3rd Apostle of Christ, here on this land the apostle preached Christianity, and accepted an excruciating death. The temple without tablets and information is not functioning, the approximate period of construction of the 5-6th century.
