Caves near Skala Svyatogo Yavleniya

This Late Byzantine cave hermitage was discovered in 1908, on the steeps under the present-day St. George's monastery, just opposite to Skala Svyatogo Yavleniya (Russian for "Theophany Cliff") where, according to a legend, St. George the Victor appeared to shipwrecked Greek sailors.

Small cave church was cut in rocky steep. To the left of it was a cave cell, to the right was a big cave with niche in its wall, which probably was a refectory. There also were few more individual caves, located at various heights in steeps of the cliff.
