Venerable bell tower⛪️History (please participate in the survey at the end of the post).
In 1207, Bishop Ioann laid the foundation for a future spiritual haven for all sufferers. In 1227, the eldest daughter of Chernihiv Prince Mikhail Vsevolodovich Feodylia was sent to Suzdal, where she was to be married to Knyaz’ Mina. Upon arrival at the destination, the girl learned about the death of the failed spouse and decided to stay in the monastery, taking the veil and a new name - Euphrosynia. It was believed that this place is guarded by her prayers. For example, during the periods of the Mongol invasion of Russia under the leadership of Batu, the city of Suzdal was completely burned, but the Rizopolozhensky monastery remained unharmed.
In the middle of the 20th century, as a result of the brutal persecutions of the Orthodox Church, a special state political administration was placed within the walls of the monastery, and adjacent buildings were turned into a cinema and a power station.
Many icons, books, iconostasis were publicly destroyed and burned by opponents of the faith in the main city square. The revival of the shrine began only in the 1970s. The first service after the reconstruction happened on October 8, 1999.
In our time, you have the opportunity to climb the bell tower and contemplate the incredible beauty of Suzdal. There is also a small museum of bells, where everyone can try himself as a bell ringer.
