The Znamensky Monastery AKA the Sign Monastery is one of the main monasteries in Siberia that spread Christianity. Dating back to the year 1689, the monastery was built by Vlas Sidorov. It was originally built of wood, which led to its deterioration over a period of time. After a reconstruction and renovation work lasting over 5 years, the present stunning structure and intricate interiors of the monastery came into picture. An admirable piece of architecture, do add Znamensky Monastery to your travel itinerary.
Trivia: Alaska explorer Grigory Ivanovich Shelekhov(1747-1795) is buried at the Znamensky Monastery.
