Ștefana Totorcea | 13 October 2020

The virtual tour of the Diveyevo Monastery is available online on the monastery’s website, reports OrthoChristian. It includes 120 panoramas made in the daytime and at night.

The tour presents an aerial panorama, views of the holy spring of St. Seraphim, of the Holy Canal along which walk and pray pilgrims and the Mother of God herself, as well as the six churches and cathedrals of the monastery.

The images of the Holy Trinity Cathedral present St. Seraphim’s relics and the two wonderworking icons: that of St. Seraphim and that of the Mother of God “Of Tender Feeling”.

The relics of Saints Alexandra, Martha, and Elena of Diveyevo can be seen in the Church of the Nativity of the Theotokos.

Saint Seraphim of Sarov was the spiritual father of the Diveyevo Monastery. His holy relics were miraculously rediscovered in 1991 in Sankt Petersburg’s Kazanskaya Cathedral. They had been removed from the destroyed monastery by the communists and kept for six decades in the basement of a museum.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
