Photographer's Note

Spaso-Prilutzky (meaning Our Saviour in Priluki) monastery was founded in year 1371 by Abbat Dimitry. Great Prince of Moscow, Dimitry Donskoy, supported construction of the monastery in the far northern part of his realm, soon a fortress was built here.
Now it's one of the biggest and best preserved monasteries in Russian North, in its complex are Cathedral of Our Saviour (1537-1542), some other ones and wooden architecture.

Photo connected from 2 photos, some signs of it are visible, sorry for that. My Canon is not very wide-angled, and I couldn't step farther from this POV, as I shot this from the cruising vessel.
