All these churches and monasteries are surrounded by a wall, at least the most important ones. There is a good distance between each of these monasteries so by walking amonst them, I got my share of the work out. It seems to me that I have been walking between 12-14 hours each day, now that is exercise......not.
There is the Deposition Church were unwanted Tsar's wives and left here. The Alexandrovsky church, intercession, and Assumption cathedral are also here.
I had a dinner in a Russian restaurant, salad, borsch and head on back to my home stay. It is very interesting to see a lot of Russian military people marching and gather near the bus station, may be they there doing drills, I just stand far away. Russia in general still feels like a police state, plenty of military folks walking around, safe but yet quite scary.
