"Visiting the Caves" Svyatogorsk Tourist Trap Tip by hunterV
Svyatogorsk Tourist Traps: 2 reviews and 10 photos
We spent about two hours standing in line to get an entrance to the caves.
People standing in front of us were buying twenty or thirty tickets each. It must have been for the entire pilgrims' group.
In the long run we could buy a ticket to enter the caves, but only for 1 p.m., which meant that we would miss our bus back.
Unique Suggestions: Join an organized pilgrims group accompanied by a priest. The priest always has an advantage and can talk to the monks there to let your group come in.
Fun Alternatives: Walk about forty minutes along the mountain road up the hill to St.Nickolas Church, but in this case you will have no chance of visiting the caves.
If visiting the caves is your aim, then you have to be a real pilgrim, stay overnight at the pilgrims hotel and come to the excursions booking-office at 4 a.m.
