Near the New Maiden's Convent

Near the New Maiden's Convent

Olive and Donna, my clients from Ireland, gave me permission to place this nice photo (decisive moment of adoption in Russia), which I took near Novodevichy ("New Maidens Convent" in English).
The convent is rather like a miniature Kremlin and the magnificent 5-domed Smolensky Cathedral was built in 1525 in the same style as the Kremlin Cathedral of the Assumption, probably by the Italian architect Aleviz Fryazin.
I hope you enjoy this nice picture.

Hi Arthur, I got across your blog while surfing for russian landscape pictures. I have always been drawn to Russia because of its interesting story of which much of it has been misunderstood by the rest of the world. After reading your commentary about the war in the Caucasus, I agree that the western media gives Russia no chance at explaining itself as expected. But thanks to your site, people who really want to know the complete picture can have access to the other side of Russia which is often not told. I wish you God's blessing and much success in this year 2009.

Regards, rolly
