Vasilievsky monastery was built in the 13th century as an outpost on the way to the Kideisha town. Legendary its foundation is connected with Validimir Krasnoe Solnyshko (Vladimir the Beautiful Sun) and the citizens’ marking with a cross where a church of oak used to be located. The monastery was founded in the 13th century. As an independent unit it existed till the times of Catherine II and later became a part of the Savior’s and St. Ephimius monastery.

Vasilievsky cathedral (1662-1669) was built on the place of a tabernacular wooden church. A Two-pillar construction  (http://www.suzdal360.ru/fs/pic39fs.html ), uncommon for Suzdal, is similar to Lazarev church but its interior is absolutely different. Its decoration is modest and ascetic: small porches and shallow crenels of the windows make it look like an ancient fortress. A three-storey bell tower erected in the 19th century is more festive: it is decorated with carved cornices and closely standing to each other pilasters.

There has remained a fence (some parts are dated back to the 17th century) with the low-rise Holy Gates in the monastery. The monastery is active although there is a part of the territory that doesn’t belong to it: there has remained a two-storey house of communal services near a wall.

Churches of Mikhali village are visible on the opposite bank of the Kamenka river -  http://www.suzdal360.ru/fs/pic165fs.html .
