Goritsy

Goritsy

Goritsy is a tiny settlement 7 kilometres from the St. Cyril on the White Lake Monastery. The Monastery was founded in 1397 by Kirill Belosersky on the shore of Lake Siverskoye. The monastery had wide trade in the 15th to 17th centuries and was used as a fortress to protect Russia’s nobility during the Times of Troubles. During the Soviet period the monastery was turned into a labour camp, but in recent years it has returned to its original use. The remains of the Nunnery of the Resurrection that sits on the banks of the Sheksna River is within a quarter of a mile of the port. It was founded in 1554 and, like the Monastery, it suffered during the 20s and 30s but has since been restored to its former use.

Goritsy is definitely a site to see for anyone with an interest in Russian history. The only way to get to Goritsy is along the river, between St. Petersburg and Moscow.
