For now pilgrims and tourists can only bow to the relics of St. Alexander Nevsky, but soon the route along the Lavra will be expanded. All those who wish can climb to the 30-meter bell tower of the monastery, see the treasury of the Lavra, in which the chamber of the remand prison of Soviet times will be reconstructed.

In Lavra they are sure that the most impressive for visitors will be the chance to see the restored churches: the small Nikolskaya, as well as the baptismal temple (crypt) of the Holy Trinity Cathedral. In addition to spiritual food, the Lavra will provide an opportunity to taste the food and enjoy the delicious bread baked according to the ancient monastic recipe.
