The Pechenga Monastery, the World’s Northernmost Monastery, Being Rebuilt


28.05.2012

The Pechenga monastery is being rebuilt at the same place where it was founded by the monk Trifon in 1533, by the influx of the Pechenga River into the Barents Sea, 135 km west of modern Murmansk, the Barents Observer reports.

Since 2008 people have come from all over Russia to participate in the construction of the logged churches, houses, towers and walls that will make up the Trifon of Pechenga monastery when it is finished. The main church is nearly completed and will soon be ready for its first service, which is planned to be held in August.

The monastery in Pechenga is the world’s northernmost. The world’s northernmost convent is also located in the Barents region, the Carmel Totus Tuus in Troms
