Description of the Aleksandrovskiy Convent

Aleksandrovskiy Convent was constructed in 1240 by a famous Russian prince Aleksandr Nevsky. Original wooden buildings were not preserved. Most of the current religious complex was rebuilt in stone and brick in the late 17th century and early 18th century with money donated by many notable families including Natalia Kirilovna, mother of Peter I the Great. The life of Russian Orthodox community ended in 1764, when Russian Empress Catherine II the Great secularized many abbeys in the country. Aleksandrovskiy Convent was closed and its remaining churches served residents of Suzdal. The abbey was revived in 2006 as a male Orthodox community.
