Description of the Kazan Virgin Monastery

Kazan Virgin Monastery is located just outside of the Kazan Kremlin to the East of the Kremlin Hill. It was constructed in 1579 and keeps one of the most famous Russian Orthodox icons of Holy Virgin of Kazan. Many buildings you see on the pictures from the early 20th century were destroyed after the Russian Revolution of 1917 in futile attempts to eradicate religion from the society.
