Novhorod Siversky is the site of the idyllic Spaso-Preobrazhensky Monastery - a complex of wood-shingled buildings and golden-domed churches surrounded by charming 19th-century country homes and perched over the leafy banks of the Desna River. The monastery dates back to Igor’s era, although it has been rebuilt several times. Its last facelift was in 2004, on the occasion of a summit between presidents Kuchma, Lukashenko and Putin (Kuchma was born about 30km from here).
