  • First we met the Svijazhsky Theotokos-assumption monastery. It was founded in the year 1555, just three years after the fall of Kazan. The first Abbot became Archimandrite Herman, who is considered the patron saint of Sviyazhsk. By the way, when in 1922, his power like a profane, started so strong thunderstorm that godless threw that thing. In the same way in the monastery are preserved some of the oldest buildings of the Volga region-uspensky Cathedral (1561) and the refectory Church of Nikolskaya (1556).

  • The place is very clean and luxurious views, beautiful cathedrals and churches. Clean and comfortable. I am proud that restore their story.

  • Monastery was founded almost simultaneously with the Foundation of the city itself. On its territory there are two buildings of the XVI century (Nikolskaya and Uspenskaya church) and several later structures of the XVII-XVIII centuries. An active restoration, which is good. What happened here during the Soviet era (Sanitorium, gulag), even for not very religious person like me is sickening.
