Monastery of the Tithes

Local nameДесятинный женский монастырь
LocationVeliky Novgorod, Russia

The Monastery of the Tithes is an inactive monastery or convent in Veliky Novgorod, one of eight ancient monasteries of Novgorod Republic.

The Desyatinny Monastery now has a regular square-shaped perimeter. The monastery's complex was developed over a lengthy period and now includes objects constructed in periods from the 14th to the 20th centuries. It was finally completed at the beginning of the 20th century but was closed in 1918 by the Soviet government. Some buildings, including both churches and part of the monastery wall, were lost in the 20th century during World War II and the anti-religious campaign, with the result that the monastery is preserved fragmentarily.
