  • I was able to visit the Spaso-Ascension Russian convent on the Mount of Olives only for the third time. On the first trip the monastery was closed because of Lent, the second time also could not get because of the fast. And so it happened we got to this monastery, despite the terrible heat (37 degrees) and not being able to get there by car (it was Friday, and the old town was blocked), we had to leave the car in the parking lot in "Mamile" and walk through the old city and climb the Mount of Olives. The ascent was extremely heavy, we drank for lifting 2 liters of water. In general, we recommend all travelers in Israel to always have with you and drink water. Arrived at the Spaso-Ascension Russian convent. The place is paradise! Lots of greenery, quiet and cozy! There are benches for rest! Very beautiful temples!
