Andronikov Monastery, Moscow

(5/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
Located on the banks of the Yauza River, Andronikov Monastery contains the oldest church still standing in Moscow. Established in 1357, the monastery complex also includes a spacious refectory and a Baroque church constructed in 1694 to commemorate the birth of Prince Alexis. Medieval walls and towers serve as reminders of a dramatic period in the city's history, when the monastery formed part of a defensive system protecting the eastern section of Moscow's central area. The monastery bell tower, constructed in 1795, remains one of the tallest such structures in the city. The resting place of Andrei Rublev, a noted painter of Orthodox icons and frescos in the 14th and 15th centuries, the monastery also houses a collection of religious art.

  • Quiet area, two temples, Museum of old Russian icons. People in Friday afternoon was no. Like in solitude enjoying the icons.
