Only the main church has survived from the monastery, around which the female Assumption monastery arose in the sixteenth century. The Church of the Assumption itself was built, as it was recently opened, even earlier than St. George’s Cathedral, in the 12th century. This temple is considered by historians to be the tomb of the princes. It is the oldest temple that survived to its full height in the whole north-west of Russia.

Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin



The Church of the Assumption of the Most Holy Mother of God (XII century) is the northernmost temple of pre-Mongol Russia, the main church of the Holy Dormition nunnery in Staraya Ladoga.

Cross near the temple

The walls of the Assumption Church were decorated with frescoes. About 30 square meters of ancient mural painting reached us - these are images of saints and the “Flourished Cross” in the dome, the same as in the famous Dmitrovsky Cathedral of the 12th century in Vladimir.

Alley
Alleyways and greenhouses have been set up on the monastery territory. Everywhere there are signs that the passage is only a blessing, so that the tourists do not trample down everything that is planted by the nuns.

Across the territory of the monastery stuck figurines of animals, most likely self-made from clay, the nuns in fact need to do something.

In the Assumption Monastery the “royal nun”, the disgraced first wife of Peter the Great, Evdokia Lopukhina, labored. In the tonsure her name was Elena, she lived in a monastery from 1718 to 1725. From the stay of Lopukhina there was a double wooden palisade and the icon "Three-handed", which she granted to the sisters who were taking care of her. According to the monastic name Lopukhina, the ancient river Ladozhka was called Elena, the embankment became known as Eleninskaya, and Eleninsky Lane appeared on the posad.
