Vovidenia Monastery

judetul Tulcea, Dobrogea

AddressLoc. Slava Cercheza,


Built in the XVII century and situated about 50 km away from Tulcea, in the village Slava Cercheza, Vovidenia Monastery is the only monastery of nuns of the old rite in the world.

In terms of historiography, the beginings of the church marked the arrival of Russian monks who have built a small hermitage eith wooden cells. Not havinga place of worship, have cleared a place on which built a small wooden church. The monastery is named after the Virgin Mary icon brought by the abbot from Russia, Kazan. In this sense, here came Russian Old Rite believers (Lippovans) who knock off around this hearth the Russian Slava village. Monks retreated into the forest, where they built another church, also of wood, on the place where in situated now monastery Uspenia.

After visiting the abandoned hermitage, a rich widow from Russia, along with her maid and a few nuns, decide to establish a monastery of nuns building cells and leading a life of self. Following the floods of 1850 which damaged the cells, remained only the church that gave them hope and putting trust in God, went to Moscow to get help and returned and built other cells in a high place, where now is the monastery.

Today in the monastery are two churches: a large church dedicated to Virgin's Entry, celebrated on November 21 on the old style and on December 4 according to the new style, and a small church (for winter) dedicated to the Virgin of Kazan icon, celebrated of twice a year once in summer on July 8.
