Pokrovsky monastery in Winter

32 vots
The Protection (Pokrovsky - in Russian) monastery was established in 1364 on a low bank of the Kamenka River. Its first walls were wooden. There was one of the main Moscow-Suzdal roads near the walls of the monastery. Noble women in dishonour were exiled to the Protection monastery. Their names have been preserved in the burial vault of the monastery: Vasily III’s wife; Ivan III’s daughter and niece; a prince Vladimir Staritsky’s wife; an Ivan the Terrible’s wife; Vasily Shujsky’s second wife; Peter I’s wife.

The center of the ensemble of the monastery is the Cathedral of the Intercession built by the unknown masters in 1518. It is solemn, majestic and at the same time very intimate, one of the most poetic churches in Suzdal. While decorating the Cathedral, its talented masters used traditional methods of the old white-stone architecture of Suzdal (http://www.suzdal360.ru/fs/pic94fs.html ).

The Cathedral is connected by a gallery (http://www.suzdal360.ru/fs/pic98fs.html ) with a tent-roofed belfry of the 16th century. The tent above it appeared at the end of the 17th century.
