  • 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.

  • Unfortunately, does not work as a monastery. Restoration is required. Now there are some workshops of Novgorod artists and other local craftsmen's workshops

  • Situated in the city centre on the tithe Street. The Chronicles mentioned in different times. History of Desjatinnogo monastery is shrouded in a haze of mystery, a lot of speculation and assumptions. During the period of the Novgorod Republic in the territory of the monastery were vladychnye cells as well as cells, and gridnicy for the reception of the Dukes, which suggests its special status at this time. The ancient monastery comes to desolation. The sad spectacle. Beautiful bell tower. Very sad that this ancient place in such a pitiful state.
