Supraśl Lavra

The Monastery of the Annunciation (Monaster Zwiastowania Najświętszej Marii Panny) in Supraśl, in Podlaskie province, is one of six Orthodox Christian men’s monasteries in Poland.

Founded in 1498 by Aleksander Chodkiewicz (the voivode of Nowogródek and the Marshall of the Great Duchy of Lithuania) and Joseph Soltan (the Archbishop of Smoleńsk and Archimandrite of Slutsk).

The Codex of Supraśl (Codex Suprasliensis) – a manuscript from 10th-century, the oldest Slavic literary work in Poland – was discovered here in 1823 by Michał Bobrowski. The Codex is on UNESCO’s Memory of the World list (since 2007).
