A 17th century monastery is equivalent to 585 square meters and would cost anyone interested about 1.7 million rubles (about $50,000). The monastery is the oldest and biggest in central Russia and has unique murals that are well preserved. While it is old and historical it has not been put on any preservation list. So it can be sold…has gone on sale in Central Russia for a price lower than that of a typical one-room flat in Moscow. The
Sveta brought this up to me and said: “What do you think about a monastery for sell?” I looked at her and thought how cool that would be to own! She said “We can buy it, you know?” I said, “Okay!”
I doubt we would but it shows that Sveta and I think alike and we would both love to have and preserve such a wonderful old monastery and live in it happy as a bed bug…
But alas we have our own monastery at our village that needs lots of love and care. I would rather buy that one, fix it up and live in it also…
Maybe we can buy both?
Windows to Russia!
