A place with strong energy and a complicated history. Once upon a time, instead of several wooden churches, there was a stone Tikhvin church in this area. However, with the advent of new power, the church was destroyed. The last services in the stone Tikhvin church were in 1938: the last abbot was arrested and shot in Levashovskaya heath near St. Petersburg.
