On the territory of the Spaso-Evfimiyevsky Monastery, you can also observe a magnificent Transfiguration Cathedral, the house of the archimandrite, the prison case, and several small churches.
A particular interest of visitors is attracted by a tomb of the prince Dmitry Pozharsky – the hero of a national militia fought against the Polish-Lithuanian aggressors. Now the monastery is a part of the Vladimir and Suzdal Museum. A lot of guided tours are conducted here. We suggest you explore a beautiful history of the monastery and the Russian iconography.
