  • Walking on Ostozhenka, it is necessary to turn to the 3-th Zachatievsky Lane, to be about Zachatevskogo stavropigialnogo Nunnery. Almost the very center of Moscow. The monastery was founded in 1360. In Soviet times, was closed (1918), and only in 1995 year resumed his mission in the status of stavropigialnogo. Tell does not make sense, come and see for yourself. The truth on February 22 in the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Virgin go restoration work (inside the scaffolding).

  • Located near the Metro station kropotkinskaya, Park Kultury Metro too. Cathedral exterior completely refurbished, inside still work. Very beautifully and harmoniously from the outside does not like new! In the Cathedral itself is a lot of icons with reliquaries! At the entrance, directly in an arch under the Church, right door in the restored chapel of Roman-Korsakovyh (Moscow, St. Petersburg not the kind from which the composer). In the same church bench and unearthed the ancient tombstones. In General, the monastery is interesting architecture, history and especially the fact that hidden courtyards in downtown Moscow.

  • From the Metro station Kropotkinskaya close (exit Metro at Ostozhenku, then go to the side of the monument and houses with an angle of a roof in the form of inverted glasses, next five minutes on Ostozhenka Street and at the crossroads with the traffic lights will see the entrance to the monastery). The tour can be ordered by phone or already in place to join began. Need to clarify for candle box in the main Cathedral. Payment guides do not take, everything goes as a personal donation of candlestick. Excursion order makes sense, since the guide not only descends into the territory of the museum complex under the monastery, where archaeological artifacts and underground dejstvjushhij Temple, but still talks about many of the icons and their history. In the monastery there is a children's choir Studio. In the refectory of the lean mass baking. In addition to the monastery of miracle-working icons still many reliquaries, including St. Lazarus, which resurrected Jesus Christ. Prayers for a miracle-working icon of Joachim and Anna about child pass once a week on Saturday. 6 January before Christmas prayer will not.
