Walls & Towers of Novodevichy

Walls & Towers of Novodevichy

This picture I took on the last morning of 2006... the weather was cool (-5 C) and a little bit snow which fell couple of days before... so Moscovites met the New 2007 Year with snow, with the winter weather which has to be here during this season.. but now, two days later, because of incredible thaw which still affect on the avarage tempretures here, the tempreture in Moscow became above zero and this snow already melted... It is pity that people who like to skate and skii, can't not enjoy their hobbies during this winter holidays...

Lying by a river bend on the south-western edge of old Moscow, Novodevichy is one of the city's loveliest monasteries and major spiritual centers from centuries back. The red and white crenellated walls and golden domes of Novodevichy Convent make it one of Moscow's most attractive monasteries. Novodevichy, or "New Maidens Convent" in English, was founded by Vasily III in 1524 to commemorate the recapture of Smolensk from the Lithuanians in 1514. The convent is rather like a miniature Kremlin, built as a fortress in the bend of the Moskva River, became an important component of the capital's southern defense belt which consisted of several monasteries and cloisters.

If you are on Arthur's website reading this email, then look no further! He is all you will need for a successful trip to Moscow. Transportation, tours, adventures and dining will all be incredible.
Arthur took us to Sergiyev Posad about an hour North of Moscow for an unforgettable tour of the monastery. We guarantee you will be moved and never want to leave.
We also took both a day and night tour of this beautiful city, including the subway. Arthur has his favorite stations, trust him, each one is more beautiful than the next.
Book early, as we waited too late and were only able to spend one day with Arthur, our loss. But with his help, advice and suggestions we were able to travel around the city with ease during the remainder of our visit.
Don't take a chance with someone else and let your time in Moscow be less than perfect. Arthur will be the ideal driver, guide and even photographer.
Be prepared to learn as he is very informative. And finally, if you don't have a sense of humor, Arthur will supply one.
