  • The monastery, there is only a small museum, but it is a unique exhibit: 14 century brick, which during its manufacture (!). i.e. the same 14 century, drawing nacarapan (rook) in good detailing. As it was found is a detective. Take a look, you won't regret it!

  • Time of occurrence of the monastery is considered to be the year 1327, when the Church of the Nativity was erected. The supplied all of its history and destroyed razorjari monastery. So, after the Swedish occupation of Novgorod 1611-1617 Gg only monastery ruined stone church, and all other wooden buildings have disappeared. In 1809, built a stone tower, which was rebuilt in 1903 and survived until our days. In the 18th century on the territory of the monastery there was a women's prison, and since 1918, Novgorod GubChK and OGPU, basement of the Nativity Cathedral was adapted under camera. During the great patriotic war was severely damaged, the main Cathedral of the monastery, which was not, restores dismantled for bricks. Now the monastery is inactive on its territory is the State Museum of art culture of Earth and the regional organization of the Union of artists of Russia. This is a remarkable place, next to the Kremlin, but if it does not know, then you can not see. Even in the monastery is a museum porcelain workshop, which regularly holds master classes in painting, I advise you to go to.
