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.

During our first trip to Russia, Arthur was a fantastic driver, guide and resource! During the planning phase of our trip, it was reassuring to have someone that knows Moscow to recommend hotels and the logistics of travel.

For 5 days, Arthur helped us navigate museums, churches, historical sites and restaurants. He was very knowledgeable about Moscow and it’s history and provided important context around the places we visited.

On our first night in Moscow, we took the night tour and it was magical. Standing in the middle of Red Square with the Kremlin, St. Basil’s and the mammoth Gum department store strung with lights is not to be missed.

I would recommend Arthur to anyone for a personalized and stress-free visit to Moscow!
