Andronikov Monastery, Moscow

(45+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
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 and pleasant place, a wonderful walk, an interesting exhibition, a good mood. While there is no foliage on the trees, imagined a parsed on the bricks in the 1930-31 years of the Bell Tower "On ndravu", which means merchant vasileva, 72.5 meters. all good mood.

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

  • Came to the exhibition a collector k. Voronin, but temporarily closed because of technical reasons. Visited-again! -the primary exposure. Nothing changes-all in their places. On the one hand, it's good, on the other hand, certainly in storerooms kept remarkable icons, which we haven't seen. It might be worth to diversify the exposure?
