    A little away from the main attractions on the Bank of the Kamenka in 1240, Alexander Nevsky was founded Alexandrovsky convent. In the 14th century the monastery lands were favored, then it became known as "the great Lavra. But construction of that time, alas, did not survive, leaving only tombstones suzdal princesses: Mary (1362) and Agrippiny (1393). In 1650, there were built new buildings, which were destroyed by fire. In 1695, 2011. the new Church of the Ascension. A high four, she in two tiers, pjatiglavie, carved trim, curly columns. On the northern side of the attached "warm" Chapel in the East is a large apse. Belfry of Alexander's monastery in suzdal only tented belfry without decorations. In the 18 century the monastery was built around a brick fence with ornamental turrets, from which there is only a small part and the holy gates. Inside the same temporary iconostasis, modern tile. In General, I hope that for this monastery will find funds for restoration.
