Description of the Malitsa Nicholas Monastery

Malitsa Nicholas Monastery is a Russian medieval Orthodox Monastery was found between 1584 and 1595. Although today it is found within boundary of Tver in the ancient times it was wilderness away from closest human settlements. It is still surrounded by a pine forest, but it is shrinking due to human activity. Most of original wooden abbey was destroyed by a terrible fire that swept through a complex in 1675. The only thing that was preserved is a large icon of Saint Nicholas along with saint Princes Boris and Gleb. The next year restoration of Malitsa Nicholas Monastery have begun largely due to donations of Gregory D. Ovtsyn. A five dome cathedral was erected in the center of reborn monastery. It was consecrated in honor of the icon of the Virgin Protectress and Saint Nicholas. Subsequently cells for monks were restored as well.
