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.

My husband, children and I spent 5 very busy days in Moscow in May for business purposes. The downside of the trip was that most locals did not speak English. On our last night in Moscow, Arthur picked us from the Olimpiski center after the Eurovision semi-finals- that was around 1.30 a.m. Arthur gave us an amazing night tour that ended around 4 in the morning. We were so pleased not only to have an English speaking guide showing us around but also getting immersed in Arthur's extensive knowledge of the Russian history. He made us feel connected to the sites we visited. Thank you Arthur for all your efforts and for turning our last night in Moscow into a memory of a lifetime...
