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.

  • Chic view opens from the observation deck, the rise on which stands symbolic 50 ₽ very responsive people-a child from the lookout dropped cap, it was enough to ask how to go to the place of the fall of the headdress, I was offered to sit on the bench and through Five minutes cap was on the head of the tomboy

  • Very cozy, quiet place. The grounds are beautiful and groomed. Temples are excellent. The gallery offers magnificent views of Lake Nero. On the territory there is a source, bring a bottle if you want to collect water. Parking in front of the monastery is available, but not very big. The entrance to the territory is free. It is possible to book a tour. We visited the monastery in the morning, the people were few.

  • Were in May as part of a bus tour from Moscow. In spite of Easter week the monastery was not elegant. Not a single flower all was somehow suldily and Budnichno holiday was felt. I don't want to blaspheme. But no impressions. Maybe the weather was so influenced. It was cloudy and cold. But we were in the monasteries and in the winter... The view from the lookout is really awesome.
