The village of Diveevo in the Nizhny Novgorod region is one of the places that even people who are far from Orthodoxy know about. The local monastery is called the fourth earthly Lot of the Most Holy Theotokos – the holy land where the Mother of God appeared to people. In addition, St. Seraphim of Sarov took part in the fate of the Diveevo monastery. He ordered to make a special groove around the monastery. People believe that if you walk along it and read 150 prayers to the Mother of God, she will definitely hear your request. And if you plunge into the holy spring, you can be healed of diseases. 1/1

4. Cape Meganom
Cape Meganom in Crimea is known not only for its beaches. Ufologists believe that this part of the peninsula attracts UFOs, as evidenced by the large rings that periodically appear on this earth. Some time ago, a special facility was located on the cape: the military allegedly investigated magnetic anomalies, but later the project was closed. The military was replaced by yogis and followers of Hinduism, who set up an altar in honor of the god Shiva on Meganom and live here for months, meditating and generating positive energy.
5. Lake Svetloyar
The legendary lake in the Nizhny Novgorod region, according to popular belief, hides in its waters the ancient city of Kitezh, which the warriors of Batu Khan wanted to conquer. Divers who studied the reservoir put forward a version that Svetloyar either does not have a bottom, or it is double. But neither of these can be proven. Near the lake, they say, you can check the purity of your thoughts: only such people manage to see the lights of the miracle city in the waters of Svetloyar. It is better to make a wish by the lake on the night of Ivan Kupala. To come true, you need to go around the reservoir three times with a lit candle.

Two such slabs stand side by side, forming the Salbyk Gate, which is considered the entrance to the world of the dead. In the Valley of the Kings, frequent guests are shamans who “recharge” on this holy land. You can also make a wish here, bypassing a large mound around the perimeter. 1/1
