  • Poganovo is the realisation of what a tucked-away monastery is, down a very scenic valley. Picturesque, peaceful and perfect! Poganovo is one of those holy places that has a peaceful and holy"feel" about it. Poganovo is tiny, so don't go expecting a giant building. This place is old and isolated. Take the time for a detour and take the time to "smell the roses".
  • Nice place for picnic. Nice food in the restaurant, good views and nice church.
