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 ONLY GAVE ARTHUR TWO AND A HALF DAYS TO SHOW US ALL OF MOSCOW AND HE CAME THROUGH. WE SAW ALL OF THE IMPORTANT CHURCHES AND MONUMENTS INCLUDING THE RED SQUARE AND MR. LENIN HIMSELF. A HIGHLIGHT BESIDES THE NORMAL WAS OUR VISIT TO THE "MUSEUM OF THE GREAT PATRIOTIC WAR". HE WAS ALWAYS ON TIME AND VERY COURTEOUS TO US. WE THANK HIM FOR INTRODUCING US TO MOSCOW.
