Specialty Museum
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.
