Holy Transfiguration-Mirozhsky Monastery in Pskov is one of the most ancient in Russia, located on the left bank of the Velikaya River, at the confluence of the small Mirozhki River. The monastery is especially famous for its magnificent pre-Mongol frescoes covering the walls of the twelfth-century Transfiguration Cathedral. On July 7, 2019, the cathedral was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.

I visited the Mirosha Monastery during the early years of restoration of the frescoes of its cathedral of the Transfiguration. Because of the scaffolding very little of the frescoes could be seen. I am delighted to view them here. My visit to the Monastery and Father Zenon remain the highlights of my Russian Pilgrimage. I am delighted to see the photos of the frescoes.
