Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery, Zvenigorod

4.8
Explore the 15th-century cathedral, royal palace, and small church at Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery. Perched on a hill, the monastery was chosen as the suburban residence of Tsar Alexis in 1650. Look for the large belfry crowned with a clock tower, which was erected at the time. Inside the cathedral, you'll see 17th-century wall paintings, the five-tiered iconostasis, and remains of 15th-century frescoes in the altar. If you'd like a snack, the cafe near the spring offers a selection of pastries.
