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.

Arthur gave me one of my nicest days as a tourist. Kind, intelligent, funny, professional, with very personal approach to his guests (you don't feel as a client with him).

He loves his country and loves Moscow. I learned a lot about the culture and the history of Russia.

It was pleasant, sunny February day and I fully enjoyed my stay. Now if I remember Moscow, I will always remember Arthur.

The services of Arthur are the best solution if you need any support during your stay in Moscow. Thank you, Arthur, I hope we meet again.
