The virtual tour of the Diveyevo Monastery is available online on the monastery’s website. 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.
