    A large ancient monastery located almost near the river. The territory is fenced with a high wall. First you get to the alley, to the right of which is the alley of the Romanovs, where there are busts of representatives of this last royal dynasty.
    Ahead you see the impressive Ascension Cathedral.
    I was here in the winter and moved along the narrow cleared paths. The monastery cemetery was covered with snow.
    The cathedral was closed, but going up the stairs through the passage I got to the Assumption Church. It is very beautiful, with stunning wall murals.
    In the neighboring building - the bishops' building, there is a church and archaeological museum.
    Definitely worth a visit!

    I'm not a fan of the exterior color, but the inside of this church is beautiful. Wood iconostases. Beautiful painting all over the interior.

    The Christmas or Stroganov Orthodox Church is one of my favorites not only in Nizhny Novgorod, but also in Russia. The combination of pink walls and white stone carvings looks very elegant. The highlight of the church is that the heads of the temple at the end of the 19th century, they were painted like the heads of St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow. The chapters were originally green. Windows, portals of entrances, additional columns are decorated with white stone carvings. Definitely worth a visit.

    This place history dates back to early 16th century wooden church build on this site after a noghai prince that had came to seige the city was unexpectedly shot from the Kremlin wall, by someone allegedly Lithuanian war prisoner.. since St Elijah is till now venerated as saint patron of Russian artillery and air defence the church was named after that saint. Today`s version is restored to 19th century fashion as seen in several pre-revolutionary landscape paintings, a good site for hiking from the riverside Rozhdestvenskaya area, not so easily reacheable by a curious tourist
