Architecture sights in Suzdal
- Sort by:
The Monastery of the Deposition of the Holy Robe was founded in 1207 but the existing buildings date from the 16th to 19th centuries. The monastery is now pretty dilapidated. Still, its two pyramidal entrance turrets (1688) on the south gate are exquisite. Suzdal's tallest structure, a 72m monastery bell tower (1813-19), rises from the east wall.
The central 16th-century Deposition Cathedral (Rizopolozhensky sobor) is reminiscent of the Moscow Kremlin's Archangel Cathedral with its three helmet domes.
The lavish, neo-Byzantine Nativity of the Virgin Cathedral, built in 1856, overlooks the central market.
