Nikolo-Vyazhishchskii Stavropegial Women's Monastery: Unicorns and Lions on the Facade

The Nikolo-Vyazhishchskii Stavropegial Women's Monastery was founded in the vicinity of Veliky Novgorod in the late 14th century. This is one of the most unusual monastic complexes in terms of architecture. Pilgrims and travelers visit it not only for the atmosphere of peace and tranquility that reigns in the monastery, but also for the colorful tiles of the 17th century that adorn the facades of the monastery churches.

Amazing glazed tiles with images of flowers, unicorns, lions and crosses encircle the refectory, the Church of St. John the Theologian, the steps of the porches and the window frames in the Nikolo-Vyazhishchskii Stavropegial Women's Monastery. The unusually beautiful and green domes of the cathedrals are visible from afar. It is worth to visit this monastery in summer, when you can admire the stunning flower gardens laid out by the nuns around the temples and hear a real frog concert when walking by the monastery pond.
