A trip to New Jerusalem
 On the 5th of December 2009 thirty students of our school went on an exciting trip to the town of Istra in Moscow Oblast. We visited two historical places of interest: the Memorial of the heroes-panfilovtsy in Dubosekovo and the New Jerusalem Monastery (Russian: Новоиерусалимский монастырь). 

At first we went on an excursion to the Museum of 28 Panphilovtsy,  listened to the guide attentively, watched the exhibits and honored the memory of the fallen heroes of the Great Patriotic war.

Then we travelled to  New Jerusalem.  The New Jerusalem Monastery was founded in 1656 by Patriarch Nikon. This site was chosen for its resemblance to the Holy Land. The River Istra represents the River Jordan, and the buildings represent the holy places of Jerusalem. the Resurrection Cathedral (Воскресенский собор) is  identical to a cathedral of the same name in Jerusalem.

In March 2009 Russian president Dmitry Medvedev signed a presidential decree on the restoration and renovation of the New Jerusalem Monastery.

The excursions were cognitive , we enjoyed the beauty of our home land and learned a lot of interesting things about the history of our country.
