The Hypatian Monastery (Russian: Ипатьевский монастырь ) is a male monastery, situated on the bank of the Kostroma River just opposite the city of Kostroma, Russia. It was founded around 1330 by a Tatar convert, Prince Chet, whose male-line descendants include Solomonia Saburova and Boris Godunov. In 1435, Vasily II concluded a peace with his cousin Vasily Kosoy there. At that time, the cloister was a notable centre of learning. It was here that Nikolay Karamzin discovered a set of three 14th-century chronicles, including the Primary Chronicle, now known as the Hypatian Codex. Most of the monastery buildings date from the 16th and 17th centuries.
