  • Interested in finding out about the history of the island-Castle Sviyazhsk-fortress was cut down in Uglich, splavlena the water through and installed in just 4 weeks. St. John the Baptist monastery in preserved wooden church of the Trinity, which, according to legend, prayed in front of Ivan the terrible in the capture of Kazan.

  • Svijazhsky John the Baptist Convent is notable for the fact that the monastic ensemble, having survived the devastation during the Soviet era, virtually unchanged, all three churches have survived. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about the Dormition monastery, he got much more. Icon of the mother of God Cathedral, joy of all who sorrow and Trinity Church are available to visit.

  • In may 2016, the monastery was in repair work, but judging by the activity, there will be a very worthy place to visit.
