A colorful monastery
Buildings of the Monastery of the Caves in Pechory, near Pskov, Russia, founded in the mid-15th century, when the first hermits settled in local caves. While the first Church of the Dormition, or Assumption, of the Theotokos was built in 1473, its modern facade was constructed in the 18th century.
