#1 of 15 in Historic Sites in Rostov
Walk among the extensive gardens and admire the distinctive architecture of the cathedrals and churches at Yakovlevsky Savior Monastery. Located on the outskirts of the city, the monastery, founded in the 14th century by St. Iakov of Rostov, sits on the edge of a lake and features a combination of different styles and architectural forms, including Neo-Gothic towers and a mixture of Baroque and Neo-Classical churches. The Dmitrievskaya Church was built in the classical style, funded by Count Sheremetev, while the Savior Transfiguration Cathedral was built in the 17th century and once belonged to another monastery. The oldest building on the grounds is the Cathedral of Conception of St. Anna, constructed in 1686. Visit the holy water spring in the front upon entry to the property. Enjoy bread and beer made by the monks in the cafe in the monastery. Note that there are fees for taking photographs inside the churches, climbing the towers, and gaining access to the walls surrounding the monastery for views of the lake. Scarves and long skirts are required for any women entering the churches, and are provided at the entrance to the monastery free of charge.

  • Take a personalized tour. Just for 4 people (we are with her husband and another couple) came out 500 rubles! And that's one and a half hours jekskursionki! Very democratic! We are fortunate to have a tour guide proved Galina Nikolaevna, which instead of overtime spent on tour with us for about three hours. Thanks for this huge! Tour proved to be wonderful: emotional and bright, with lots of details, with excursion into the history of the city, medieval and ancient Rus, with familiarity with the wonderful people at that time. A couple of years ago, we were already in the Spaso-Yakovlevsky monastery Dmitrievom, but one day and very fast, fast. So could not fully until the end to feel the beauty and cleanliness of this place. Well, this time it happened-imbued with! Visit uniquely! And better guide!
