«Walking to the church of Annunciation of Our Lady»

A pleasant, tranquil walk can be enjoyed as you stroll through the beautiful gardens of St. Nicholas Convent. The road is leading to the winter Church of Annunciation of Our Lady, painted in bright yellow and green colors. The church built in 1748 (to replace the church of Our Lady of Kazan which was burnt in 1745) on donations from Maxim and Ivan Schelyagins (on their donations Holy Gates were also constructed).

The two-story monastic building with cells for monks on the left side of this picture was constructed in 1894 by the father superior of the monastery Vladimir. However, four years later, in 1898, the monastery was transferred to convent and this building accommodated about 100 local nuns. At the end of 19th – beginning of 20th century the convent was one of the richest cloisters of Pereslavl-Zallesky and it remains one of the well-maintained and prosperous convents in present days.
