Andronikov Monastery, Moscow

5.0
#47 of 244 in Museums in Moscow
Specialty Museum 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.

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
