St. Theodore Convent

The St.Theodore Convent is located in the southern part of Pereslavl. According to legend, it was founded in 1304 on the site of a battle between a joint force of Muscovites and Pereslavlians and the battalion of the town of Tver. The oldest building of the the convent is a five-domed cathedral dedicated to Theodore Stratilate. The erection of this cathedral is related to the birth of the son of Ivan the Terrible. A legend says that the tsarina Anastasia brought into the world a child not far from Pereslavl; today the place is marked by the St.Theodore chapel. Originally, the sanctuary was a male monastery and only after the Time of Troubles and the Plague did it become a convent.
