St. Nicholas Monastery (Pereslavl-Zalessky)
The monastery was founded in the 14th century by St. Dimitri of Priluki. Several churches are located on the site; the St. Nicholas Cathedral was built in the 18th century and has a pyramidal shape. Two of the oldest temples on the site of the monastery have survived to the present times - the Peter and Paul Church and the Annunciation Refectory Church.
The St. Nicholas Monastery was mostly destroyed during the Soviet period, but has been undergoing renovations since 1999.
