Photographer's Note

I wish I had more time in Suzdal! It is such a delightful place. After visiting Suzdal Kremlin, open air museum, a few monastery and churches, i sat on the small river bank and just enjoyed the calm sunset view. This is a close up of the monastery I had no time to visit. It was on the other side of the river and to go there was a bit far, too late unfortunately.
In WS I will post other photos.

The photo of the Convent of the Intercession (Pokrovsky Monastery). This monastery was built on mid of 14th century. In old ages in Russia, man could decide to make his wife or his daughter a nun. She should live inside of monastery whole her rest life. It was really cruel and miserable.
The first wife of Peter the Great was sent here, too, after he wanted to marry a German woman Ekaterina.
