My Dear clients from Australia, Michael and Larraine Collins, standing on a high bank of Kamenka river near St. Euthymius monastery of Our Savior where opens beautiful panorama of Suzdal with view on Pokrovsky (Intercession) convent. The convent of the Intercession was founded in 1364, but its present-day look the convent took in the 16th and 17th centuries. It became widely known as a place of life exile for those women of the aristocratic families who became victims of dynastic struggles, family conflicts or severe customs of their ages.
