Dormition Church of the Former Gorny Convent

In 1590 the Gorny Convent was founded in Vologda and between 1692 and 1699 the Dormition Church was built inside, replacing an earlier stone version. In 1880 a bell tower and refectory were built on. In 1918 the convent was closed but the Dormition Church continued to function up until 1924 when it was turned into a cinema. The church has since been reopened but the convent has not been re-established. Some auxiliary buildings of the convent also survive to this day.
