The Bell Tower was constructed in 1800 and was a part of Nikolo-Zhabensky monastery. In 1930s under the project of creating Uglich reservoir and Uglich hydroelectric power plant on Volga river Nikolskiy monastery was demolished and the Bell Tower was partly flooded. Later its foundation was reinforced and a little artificial island with a berth was built around the Tower. The Tower rises 75 meters high (approx. 25-store building).
