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.

I had a great time with Arthur. We went out one night to photograph Moscow at night, and we spent an entire day together touring around.

Arthur speaks fluent English and it is very easy to converse with him on most any topic. I grew up in the US during the Cold War and Arthur did the same in Russia. It was fascinating to compare our impressions as we both saw how much the world has changed.

One of my goals on our day tour was to find a specific gift for my wife. Arthur made it his mission to help me locate the present.

I would recommend Arthur to anybody visiting Moscow without hesitation.
