Novodevichy convent at night

Novodevichy convent at night

Novodevichy (New Maiden's) convent, which located near pond , attracts a lot of tourists for sigthseeing. I like very much this place, very quiet and peaceful here, in spite of that this is very close to center of the city...


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. Russian architects created a festive ensemble by combining traditional Russian architecture with some compositional devices of the Moscow baroque architecture.

For our first trip to Russia my wife and I (in our 60s) wanted the services of a reliable and informative Moscow guide for 3 days. We found Arthur on the internet and made the usual enquiries. His email responses were lightning fast, his english as good as ours and his rates competitive. We signed up with him and he fully delivered on everything that he promised. He met us at Moscow Station and we spent 3 full days sightseeing with him - 2 days in Moscow plus a one day trip to Vladimir and Suzdal, and a very memorable night lights tour of Moscow as well. Arthur is the complete guiding professional. He is extremely knowledgable of Russian history, efficient, courteous, honest, friendly (with a great sense of humour) and is also a great photographer which adds greatly to the photo memories that you want to capture. We had no knowledge of Arthur before finding him on the internet but he is easily the best guide we have ever experienced in our numerous travels abroad. We have no hesitation in recommending him.
