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.

I found Arthur's details via a google search and discovered lots of excellent testimonials regarding his services for my trip to Moscow, and I was not disappointed! From the meeting at the airport to catching a train to Nizhny Novgorod Arthur took care of everything. Being English I feel that our customer service standards have slipped, but it is a breath of fresh air to find this standard of exceptional service does still exist! Without Arthur my trip to Russia would have been very mediocre, as I was travelling alone to visit a friend. Please if you are travelling to Moscow don't take a chance book Arthur; he is not only an excellent driver and guide with a geat deal of enthusiasm and passion for his city but also a gentleman and a friend. I will be returning to Moscow and the first person that I will contact before the visa office is Arthur. All the best to you, you are a top man!!! Neil Smith England!:)
