I love to visit this built in the 17 century Pokrovskiy Monastery Complex (also known as the Holy Shroud Monastery). It located right in the center of the city, across Historical Museum. Despite that it right at the busiest area (metro Istoricheskiy Museum and metro Sovetskaya) it feels so peaceful there, especially on the back where they have a small rose garden and you can rest in the shade of the trees. Beautiful architecture. They require for women to cover their heads and pants, but scarfs and skirt-like wrappings provided at the entrance. Church bell rings beautifully every hour.
The Monastery has it's own very popular bakery for small pies and bread. You can buy those on the monastery territory or outside, on the left where locals artists sells their paintings.
