Photographer's Note

In this small seaside settlement called Priasovskiy, the construction of a new part of Savvino-Storozhevskiy Monastery is under way. There will be the Patriarch’s house, a monastery and an orphanage. The new Trinity Church will be one of the biggest churches of the South Russia. Its height is 60 m.

The area between this place and the nearest seaside (about 1 km) is called "Switzerland of Taman". There are picturesque hills and a blue lake with mineral water there. Although the Priasovskiy hamlet did not look very presentable in the summer 2009, when this picture was taken, it promises to be "Geneva of Taman", when the construction works are completed.
