Holy Sorrows women’s monastery located at 43 Kirov Street is one of the important historical landmarks of Starobilsk.
It was founded in 1849.
The full name of the monastery is Russian Orthodox Church Monastery of Our Lady, The Joy of All Who Sorrow.
It architectural complex adorned the city for decades.
You can't help admiring its architecture even now.
In 1924 the monastery was closed by the Bolsheviks. Its premises were used for a military unit and were only returned to the church after the desintergration of the Soviet Union.
Now you can attend a liturgy there or simply enter the church and light a candle or two there.
The monastery’s roadside church is open for public.
All other p[renises are only used my nuns of the monastery.
