Inside of Novodevichy Convent

Inside of Novodevichy Convent

During for 400 years the Novodevichy Convent was the witness and the participant of important historical events, connected with the names of Ivan the Terrible, Boris Godunov, Sofia and Peter I. The architectural ensemble of the convent was formed by the end of 17th century and till now remains one of the best in Russia.
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.
Russian architects created a festive ensemble by combining traditional Russian architecture with some compositional devices of the Moscow baroque architecture.

Arthur, thanks again for your prompt, suitable and informative attention. Our visit to Moscow was enhanced because of you. Our regret is that we had only a day to spend with you. Ettore Pedron

Arthur helped to make our time in Moscow a delight. He is most conscientious, prompt, well organized and fun to be with as well. But most important he is a very skilled driver, which is essential in the wild streets and highways of Moscow! Thanks Arthur.
