Goritsty-Kirillov : Michelin's recommendations
Goritsy offers a charming vision of the Russian countryside with its postcard decor of pretty isbas nestled on the banks of the Sheksna. From here it is best to proceed to Kirillov, where St Cyril Monastery lies sheltered behind thick walls on Lake Siverskoye. Don’t miss the remarkable frescoes at Ferapontov, a more intimate monastery founded in the 14C by a disciple of Cyril.
