  • Alexander, a former convent, is located on the left bank of the river Kamenka in suzdal, was founded in 1240 year Alexander Nevsky. Church of the assumption with a bell tower built in the year 1695 means Queen Natalia Kirillovna, Peter's mother in the year 1764, when Catherine the great secularization of land, the convent was abolished with the appeal of the Cathedral in the city's Parish Church. In 2006 year, renewed as a male monastery. The monastery is interesting architecturally and historically. The complex stands out Voznesenskaya church with belfry-Octahedral-shaped pillar Bell Tower put on low accumulator, to which built a wooden staircase. Its walls are almost devoid of decoration, which makes it unique among the suzdal tent bell towers. Modest decoration of the upper part serves as a carved arch framing apertures above Windows and trim-rumors. In the first half of the 18th century the monastery was built around a low fence, adorned with ornamental turrets with styling under defensive towers. And then there were the Saints gate with bunk turret, reminiscent of the Holy Trinity monastery gate, now included in the ensemble of the Rizopolozhenskogo monastery. Object interesting, but produces the kind of running the monastery. Apparently there is not enough funding. Inside somehow bednenko. Located on the territory of the monastery houses some tractors, cars. This is not surprising, judging by the position of one of the monks, who managed to speak. When I asked him to take pictures inside for posting images on websites and promotion of the monastery as a historic site. I replied that they do not need (rely on the will of God) and reasoning that you may experience some negative factors. It seems to me that the Church, the convent, like any other object for its development needs advertising, promotion to maintain in good condition. Especially in suzdal, where significant arrival collect very difficult population because nedotjagivaet even up to 10 thousand. man and the only hope for the tourists. But as their draw differently. But beneath the recumbent stone, say, water is not flowing ... Sit, wait, when monks manna from the sky fall down ...

  • Running the monastery, seen that there is not enough funding. Perhaps little inscribing object is given due to the fact that he is away from the main routes, but nevertheless it is beautiful
