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.

We had a fabulous time in Moscow, and Arthur made it all so easy... He showed us everything we wanted to see and much more, in a very efficient yet fun & friendly manner. From the very responsive pre-trip planning and arrangements to the airport pick-up through 4 full days of touring and late night drop-off at the train, Arthur was always on-time and extremely competent. Arthur's talents as a photographer really enhanced our experience, as he produced some truly professional quality photographs as memories of our trip; a huge bonus. Highly recommended!
