Goritzy is a small village in Russia, 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) north of the town of Kirillov, Kirillovsky District, Vologda oblast, Russia. It is best known for its two monasteries: the Kirillo-Belozerskiy monastery and the Goritsy Nunnery.
The Kirillo-Belozerskiy monastery is slightly more well-known, playing a role in the beginning and end of Ivan the Terrible's life. Although less grand, the setting of Goritsy Nunnery on the banks of the broad Skeksna River is stunningly beautiful. This ghostly building with pure white walls can be glimpsed through the forest, making it look like a vision out of a fairy tale.
