The Saviour Monastery of St. Euthymius is a monastery in Suzdal, Russia, founded in 1352.
The monastery was founded in 1352 by the monk Yevfimi from Nizhny Novgorod, invited by Grand Prince Boris Konstantinovich of Suzdal-Nizhny Novgorod. The monastery, originally called the Spassky, was located high over the Kamenka River and served as a fortress to protect the town from any attackers. The original monastery buildings were made of wood, however, there is no data on their appearances. Monk Yevfimi (Euthymius) became the first archimandrite and lived here until 1404. Upon his death the monastery was renamed after him into the Spaso-Yevfimiev Monastery.

Great place, full of history that goes from the ancient beginnings of Russia and the Mongol invasion to the WW2 where the monastery served as a camp for Italian soldiers, also served as a political prison for Stalin. This is the place to come and see if you're in Suzdal.
