About us

The Russian Pilgrim's Residence was established in 2012 on the Baptism site reserve, on the east bank of the Jordan River just at the site of the Baptism of the Lord.

Today the residence invites guests who wish to stay in this holy place. The hotel includes everything, modern pilgrims may need: beautiful church, refectory, car parking. Two descents to the Jordan River for small and large groups are available, so a rite of blessing the water may be celebrated right on the beach. Likewise, even large pilgrim groups may dip comfortably into the Jordan River.
