  • Not far from the city centre by Vasyl Street is male vasilyevskiy monastery. It is relatively small, there's only a few novices. It consists of Vasilevsky Cathedral (1662-1669) with belfry of sretenskaya Church (XVIII century), the home of Archimandrite (19th c.) and fraternal buildings (18th century). At the same time, the last two-monuments and protected by the State, are residential. Acolyte-very hospitable and good-natured woman, many told about the history of the monastery, its icons and relics, among which the particle of the relics of St. Basil the great, the prinesenna donated the monastery of the Patriarchate of Jerusalem and reliquary "All Saints in the land of Vladimir beamed", as well as an icon of St. George. From the words of the sisters, found the icon was quite black and only after 4 years after independence it became manifest figure. For 50 rubles. You can climb the Tower, overlooking the Suzdal and coming around, as we took advantage of. Be careful climbing stairs in the wall cool, passage is very narrow.

  • From the Kremlin and trade rows before him stretches a lovely and cozy Vasyl Street. The original House, several shops and a peaceful life. Better to go by foot. Minutes 10-15 leisurely step. The monastery itself perfectly complements the whole atmosphere of the city. A small, unassuming and very soulful. Definitely worth a visit. Monastic cat, barracks and a small backyard garden make this place truly beautiful.
