Monastery of Our Lady of Kazan (Tambov)
The monastery was founded in 1670. In 1758 it was declared the main residence of local bishops. The monastery was closed in 1918 after the Russian Revolution. In 1992 the monastery reopened and underwent renovation. The renovation was completed in 2007.
The monastery has the tallest belltower in Central Russia, rising to a height of 107 meters. This Neoclassical campanile was built between 2009 and 2014 to replace a smaller structure demolished by the Communists.
