|It is beautiful spiritual and historical place, very well preserved and maintained, resort for souls in thirst for genuine and eternal. Highly recommend to visit. If not in reality, just use web-site.|

|When visiting Vologda this spring, we asked a local tourist-guide what to see and she recommended a trip to Ferapontov. As it was out of season we had a privat tour of the monastry by the director. What a place; so quiet and peaceful and the paintings in the church are absolutely amazing. |
This place is well worth the trouble getting there.
The best way to see the monastry are to arrange with the infocentre in Vologda and it is relatively inexpencive to visit.
