In the countryside a little ways from Cooperstown, you turn the corner and suddenly you see amazing gold colored spires. As from nowhere. The Monastery is beautiful both inside and out. The monks will give you a guided tour if you make arrangements in advance. This is not a tourist attraction -- it is a holy place with real people... More

This is a fascinating place for anyone interested in early 20th century history,religion, or art/architecture. There is something for individuals of all ages. I was fortunate to visit during a Chamber of Commerce business outing and we got the benefit of a guided tour. This monastery was significant as the center of Russian culture in the U.S. for much of... More

There is no fee for the monastery, but contributions are accepted and appreciated especially at the museum. I was not sure what to expect and what I found was way more than I had hoped for!! The monastery is a working monastery which was awesome to witness. We started in the bookstore while we waited for the museum to open... More

We were taking a side trip to Little Falls traveling from Richfield Springs when we came upon the Holy Trinity Monastery. It was so special to see the beautiful and holy buildings nestled in the countryside. I feel lucky to have found it.

Always hospitable, this is a really interesting and spiritual place to visit, with beautiful art and artifacts. Great for adults, perhaps not for children.

We were on our way to a wedding and drove by this beautiful church. We stopped but couldn't go in because I wasn't wearing a skirt and didn't have anything for my head but the outside was so pretty. It is a Russian Orthodox Monastery. It was a very peaceful and beautiful place.

Holy Trinity is an active monastery of the Orthodox Church founded by refugee Russians. For someone seeking a place of devotion it will be a pleasant place to visit

Holy Trinity Monastery, in the village of Jordanville, was established in the 1930s by Russian monks who had fled from the Communist regime. It experienced another growth spurt after the Second World War with another influx of refugees, and has continued to grow at a slow but steady pace over the past 50 years--in a world that seems to reinvent...
