Beautiful Place

Such a beautiful and serene place. Sviyashk is a gem and this monastery is as elegant and relaxing as any building on it.
Such a beautiful place with a wonderful aura of reverence. Loved it here.

Really Beautiful
Jul 2018 • Friends
Magnificent monastery on Sviyashk with beautifully well kept grounds and some magnificent churches like St Nicholas and the Assumption Cathedral.
It is such a picturesque place and the churches have stunning icons and iconostasis. Such a serene place to wander and enjoy the atmosphere of reverence.
You'll have to cover legs and shoulders when going in but they provide the wraps.

Monastery with dark history
Jun 2015 • Friends
The Holy Dorminition Monastery in Sviyazhsk is one of two functioning monasteries on this island-city. It was established in 1555, just 3 years after the conquest of Kazan by tthe Russian forces. During the Revolution and the Civil War it became a prison and the execution site. During the Soviet times it was a psychiatric hospital. Now it is a monastery again. We visited it on a workday. It was really quiet and peaceful.

Recently reconstructed

The monastic complex of Sviyazhsk has been recently reconstructed and offers a mix of spiritual experience and light sightseeing. There's lots to see and learn about the history of this peninsula, its importance in the crusades of Ivan IV. and much more. Many picturesque paths to walk and nice souvenir stalls as well.
