A medieval Byzantine monastery becomes a rare modern day miraculous sanctuary. It has always been a place of deep thought, art and literacy in the region, since its establishment. In the past it was a significant place known for book writing and copying school. Nowadays it is often visited because of the extraordinary frescoes and the amazing wood carved iconostasis, but also by many believers who want to visit the grave of St. Gavril Svetogorski. In the nineteen nineties, the brotherhood is restored by a single monk and soon various miracles start to happen to visitors and believers visiting him, and recently, his grave. You can hear the peculiar stories firsthand, from the other monks in the brotherhood when you visit the Lesnovo monastery.
