I live in the settlement of Ibresi which is situated in the Chuvash Republic.About 8 thousand people live here. Ibresi is more than 100 years old, it was founded in 1893.There are some historical places which attract tourists. I want to tell you about оne of them - The Holy Spring The Holy Spring is situated in the village of Syurbeevka, nearly three kilometers from the settlement of Ibresi. The full name of the spring is the Holy Spring of Saint of Great Martyr and Curer Panteleimon. This curative spring was opened by the oldest villager of Syurbeevka Peraskovya Alexeevna Terentyeva. She is 92 years old now. She is a widow; her husband was lost during the Great Patriotic War. In 1955 her children and she noticed a spring gushing out of the ground. Having dug a pit they put a tub. Everybody liked the water, people from other villages came to drink the water and take it to the homes. She says that she has kept her health and strength due to this “fresh” water. The Holy Spring was opened festively on the 19th of January 2006. Much preparatory work was done before its opening. The chapel was built near the Holy Spring, a new road was made to the Holy Spring, a local bridge was repaired, and the territory of the Spring was brought in good order. The ritual of holing was held by the prior Panteleimon (Pegasov).A lot of people took part in the ceremony of the opening of the Holy Spring. After the ceremony some people bathed in the Holy Spring. On the 9th of August, 2006 the Chuvash mitropolit Varnava visited the Holy Spring.He wished everybody good health and prosperity. Many people come to the Holy Spring in order to admire a picturesque view of the local places and to drink the curative water. Schoolchildren from the neighboring villages and the settlement of Ibresi hold excursions here. Welcome to our settlement!
