Spaso-Evfimiyev Monastery Museum Complex, Suzdal

4.7
Visit Spaso-Evfimiyev Monastery Museum Complex, a World Heritage Site boasting multiple architectural monuments: a cathedral, refectory church, campanile, church with a hospital block, dormitory, and the jail known as the cruelest in Russia. In 1352 the Prince of Suzdal and Nizhny Novgorod, Konstantin Vasilievich, founded the monastery, which bears the name of its first abbot. Notice the complex's pink walls and 12 distinctive towers. Go to the small square, surrounded by the massive cathedral topped with five large onion domes, and step into the refectory church and campanile crowned with a clock tower. The church is one of the earliest architectural monuments with a hipped roof. Look for the 16th-century murals depicting the saint abbot Evfimy on the south side chapel.

  • This location is great for travelers than for pilgrims, but that's what will satisfy both, so this male monastic choir. It is superb! When you listen to how they sing a prayer in the soul of a storm of emotions and you want to cry with delight! Breath catches and want to listen and listen. Those who heard this once won't forget ever!

  • Great place, but I agree with the previous review: bad, that there is no differential entry fees for each exposure and just the ticket at the entrance. We came here with a small child and best reviewed physic garden. And here's the rest of the site, except for the temple, perhaps, see problematic. Invented here tourist card to visit all the museums in the city.

  • A very interesting museum complex, there is a pharmaceutical garden, not great, but there are interesting plants Yes and remember the old name too useful, sipping, surrounded by the towers, to the belfry you need to buy a separate ticket and there's time, we were at 11.30, climbed to the top, ringer told a little bit about history, but do not judge strictly, then there was a terrific ringing of bells and Bell-ringer taught us to call bells , really enjoyed this excursion. Spaso-Preobrazhenskiy Cathedral is very beautiful, and the choir was stunning.
