In 1734, Empress Anna Ioannovna transferred land 19 miles from St. Petersburg on the shores of the Gulf of Finland to her confessor , rector of the Trinity-Sergius Lavra, Archimandrite Varlaam (Vasily Vysotsky). Earlier on these lands there was a manor (“Primorskaya Dacha”) of the elder sister Anna Ioannovna, daughter of Tsarina Praskovya - Catherine , Duchess of Mecklenburg-Schwerinsk.
Varlaam moved a wooden church from St. Petersburg to the monastery, erected wooden walls, cells and the stone building of the governor. According to the design of P. A. Trezzini, in 1756 - 1760 the cells were built of bricks, and by 1764 towers appeared on the corners of the walls. In the same year, the monastery, where about 20 monks lived, separated from the Trinity-Sergius Lavra and began to be ruled by its own archimandrite.
Around 1773, the future Rev. Herman of Alaska entered the desert as a novice at the age of 16 and stayed here for five years, after which he went to Valaam .

In 1805-1809, in the western part of the Sergius Desert, a two-story empire building with a portico was built, the project of which was carried out by L. Ruska . The church of St. Valerian, built in the form of an oval rotunda, was in the central part of the building; the iconostasis in this temple (single-tier) was also placed in a semicircle.
