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.

  • A very interesting place in all aspects. Beautiful chimes every hour, all in Russian. White Church, green domes, blue sky with clouds. André Le Paute! And along with this, severely-majestic view of Spaso-Efimieva Monastery outside. On the Hill of dark red brick, anxious somehow. Most shook the prison on the territory of the monastery. All retell not possible but extremely interesting about prisoners on religious, political and criminal matters. Be sure to visit the prison Museum! Very brutal power system was in our country.

  •  Visit 9/30. Monastery is surrounded by walls, beside the gate, Church, belfry, residential, farms and forests. Beautiful bell sound, coupled with the leaves of the surrounding landscape, is great. Recommended for those who like the countryside.
