Saint Alexander Nevsky Lavra or Saint Alexander Nevsky Monastery was founded by Peter I of Russia in 1710 at the eastern end of the Nevsky Prospekt in Saint Petersburg supposing that that was the site of the Neva Battle in 1240 when Alexander Nevsky, a prince, defeated the Swedes; however, the battle actually took place about 12 miles (19 km) away from that site. "On April 5, 1713, in St. Petersburg, in the presence of Peter I, the wooden Church of the Annunciation was consecrated. This day is considered the official founding date of the Alexander Nevsky Lavra." (April 5, 1713 Gregorian was March 25 Julian, feast of the Annunciation.)

Quite peaceful place
Beautiful place and rather authentic. Some of the staff are very friendly, others still use Soviet manners.
Хамские агрессивные работники в пекарне и на входе в музей где продают билеты...сколько же агрессии в людях которые работают в таком месте... разочарованы.
So good but a little busy
A hidden treasure in Saint Petersburg
Beautiful serene monastery in the middle of the city. The main church is fantastic.
Nice to stroll around the complex. There wasn't that much to see, so a brief stop will do. Not a must-do for those with a tight itinerary.
A simple stop at the end of Nevsky prospekt. The church has finally been restored and is open. You must stop at their bakery, else your visit will have been wasted.
