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.

We recently spent two days with our friends in Moscow and cannot say enough good things about our experience with Arthur! He is very knowledgeable about Moscow history and makes you feel so comfortable during your visit! Arthur was always on time and excited and ready to share his city. We only had 2 days in Moscow and Arthur was amazing at helping see all the great sites in a short time, without ever feeling rushed. On our last day, Arthur took us to a great restaurant where he helped us to choose traditional Russian food from the menu! Arthur was more than a guide, he was a friend and we are very grateful to have met him. Thank you for helping us make our visit to Moscow one of our most favorite experiences we've had! Keep up the good work!
