Andronikov Monastery, Moscow
(5/5 based on 40+ 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.

  • There is a sense that history is not vyvetrelas′ of walls and towers. To visit it is necessary to prepare. Read the story. The Museum exhibits, which are wonderful guides open formally. Read though Wikipedia to read tags icons, they are worth it!

  • Very interesting place almost in the very center of Moscow. The former monastery. Founded in the year 1357. The history of the monastery is quite remarkable. It is especially interesting that the Spassky Monastery-the oldest preserved building of Moscow, and his murals have been created with the participation of Andrei Rublev. He was at the monastery and was buried.
