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.

Hiro and I recently spent three days in Moscow to attend the 2006 Cup of Russia at which a friend of ours participated. From the moment we contacted Arthur via this website, he was completely professional. Our flights arrived and left during the middle of the night, but it was no problem to Arthur to collect us and bring us where we needed to go. He even helped us check-in at our hotel and when we left he brought us right to our check-in counter. Unfortunately, we didn't have very much time for sightseeing, but we had come all the way to Moscow, so we wanted to see a bit of the city. Arthur put together a short tour to take us around to some of the major sights (Church of Christ Our Saviour, Kremlin, Red Square, GUM, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, etc.). Being a photographer, he also knew the best vantage points to get some nice pictures. He was so knowledgable about Moscow and it was great to hear his commentary about the city. He also helped us very much in shopping for souvenirs and recommending reasonable places to eat. All in all, Arthur made our stay in Moscow so enjoyable and memorable and I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who visits Moscow.
