«The Fortified Walls and Towers of Goritsky Monastery»
The fortress walls and towers of Goritsky monastery in Pereslavl-Zallesky were erected during the first half of the 17th century, but they were mostly rebuilt in the 18th century. At the right on the picture are steps the Assumption cathedral of the monastery that was constructed in 1753 - 1762. Goritsky Assumption monastery was founded in the 14th century on highest hill near Pleshcheyevo Lake. Its walls and towers are visible from all directions.
