For non-Orthodox, the monastery is most interesting for its unusual architecture: the Assumption Cathedral (early 15th century), the Intercession Church with the only five-pointed bell tower (1581), the Ascension Church (1676–1679), the Tikhvin Mother of God icon (early 19th century) ) Holy Cross Church (1871–1877, designed by Benoit). The walls and towers of the monastery are well preserved.
The wooden gateway of the Tikhvin water system is located to the east of the monastery. Only the foundation of the airlock was preserved, but even this fragment, built in the 18th century and completely made of wood, makes an impression.
