Annunciation Monastery is one of three monasteries in the city of Nizhyn.

Annunciation Monastery is one of three monasteries in the city of Nizhyn. The abode was created at the initiative of Metropolitan Stefan Yavorsky after the consecration of the newly built Nezhin Annunciation Cathedral in 1717. During the monastic reform of Catherine II it received the status of the second class monastery. It was repeatedly burned and rebuilt. Until our time, the monastic buildings of the Annunciation Cathedral, shopping malls, cellars, houses of the abbot and refectory were preserved. In 1921, it was closed by the Soviet authorities and reborn in the early twenty-first century.
