Complex of Buildings of the Stable Yard
The complex of the stable yard of the Uspensky (Assumption) Monastery is a unique specimen of civil architecture of this purpose. In most cases, such complexes of stable yards were completely lost.
The complex was built in stone on the place of the previous wooden stable yard of the monastery in the 18th century. In the course of the restoration, the complex regained its original appearance, which was distorted during the 20th century, when it accommodated the outbuildings, first, of the colony and then of the hospital. Located in its territory are now the workshops and stalls of craftsmen, the “Traktir” Cafe, a small hotel, a stable, and a riding hall.
The complex of the stable yard, along with the Sviyazhsk museum, is the favourite place of all tourists and guests of Sviyazhsk.
