Spassky (St Saviour) Monastery, Yaroslavl

(4.4/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Visit Spassky (St Saviour) Monastery, home to the oldest building in the city--the monastery cathedral. Originally built in the 12th century, the monastery also served as a citadel. Look at the remains of a thick 16th-century fortification wall, mounted with watchtowers. Underground passageways once lead to the monastery dungeons and treasury within the walls. The monastery is part of a larger preserve, so you'll also have the chance to explore the museum collection, including the 12th-century manuscript, "The Tale of Igor's Campaign." Use our Yaroslavl holiday planner to add Spassky (St Saviour) Monastery and other attractions to your Yaroslavl vacation plans.

  • The Museum is located on the territory of the monastery. I advise to visit his monastery without entering the Museum departments in the territory. Very interesting architecture and beautiful, must see.

  • Unfortunately, my wife and I were at the monastery in 30-degree cold, so everything in detail view could not — barn. But this is not a problem-there is a reason to come back. Opposite Holy Gates of the monastery is the original "new" — the chapel of our Lady of Kazan.

  • I recommend walking through the territory of the monastery and visit to the exhibition "the word about Igor's Regiment", but always with a guide ... I advise you to hurry-2018 g. buildings and exhibits on the territory of the monastery will go into the maintenance of the ROC.
