Monument to Grand Duchess Elizaveta Feodorovna near the Kazan Church of the Assumption Nunnery
On July 13, 1914, while visiting the Assumption Nunnery in Perm, Grand Duchess Elizaveta Feodorovna went to the Church of the Kazan Icon
of the Mother of God.
In the Soviet times, the Assumption Nunnery was closed, the nunnery cathedral was blown up. In the 1970s, there were plans to destroy the Kazan Church as well. However, Perm writers and journalists Anatoly Korolev and Leonid Yuzefovich, who stood up for the church, managed to prove its unique historical value.
Perm merchants and philanthropists Kamensky brothers, who built the Assumption Nunnery, did not skimp on funds: outstanding artists participated in the decoration of the Kazan Church: Nesterov, Vasnetsov, Repin…
In 1993, the revival of the Assumption Nunnery began, and two years later the Kazan Church was returned to the nunnery.
In 2018, a monument to Grand Duchess Elizaveta Feodorovna was installed next to the Kazan Church on the initiative of the Elisabeth-Sergius Educational Society Foundation for the Promotion of Traditions of Mercy and Charity.
