Realistically, especially if it's not on a Saturday or Sunday. But on weekends you can visit the relics and the miraculous icon - there are two queues, you can get into both of them at once. You can go and have lunch, there is a nice refectory.

It's quite possible! You should also go to Savvino Storozhevsky monastery. In Zvenigorod. There are his holy relics. You can stay there overnight and then go to matins. It's divine.
Quite. Many people go especially at 4 o'clock. There are less people.
Back in the 19th century it was estimated that various churches and monasteries in Europe held as sacred relics: - 3 whole mummified prophet Elijah; - 18 skulls and 12 arms of the Apostle Philip; - 9 skulls of the Apostle Luke; - 2 heads, 17 arms and legs and 5 torsos of St. Andrew; - 20 body fragments and 26 heads of St. Julian; - 5 torsos, 6 heads, 17 arms and legs of St. Andrew; - 13 arms of St. Sebastian; - 15 arms of John Chrysostom; - 8 heads, 6 legs and arms and 2 bodies of St. Anne; - 30 bodies of St. Gregory; - 30 bodies of St. Pancratius; - 11 index fingers, 7 jaws, 9 arms and 7 heads of John the Baptist with special feasts established in the Orthodox and Catholic churches in honor of the discovery of each Baptist head! .
You can. I used to work nearby, I'd go in after work. Stand in line for 2-3 hours. While you're standing, you pray.
Of course you can. It takes a few hours, but it's real. Been there a few times myself. As luck would have it.
no problem, even faster on weekdays than weekends.
