Krutitskoe Podvorye, Moscow

(420+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
Still functioning as an ecclesiastic estate of the Russian Orthodox Church, Krutitskoe Podvorye has survived dramatic periods of upheaval and neglect over the centuries. Passing from the church to the military in the late 1700s, the complex was used as a storehouse, barracks, and prison; it functioned as a museum during the late Soviet period, and finally fully returned to the church in 1996. The complex contains two churches, the metropolitan's (bishop's) residence and gallery, a riverside dormitory, and a set of 19th-century wooden houses. Don't miss the intricately detailed ornamentation and holy icons of the Dormition Cathedral (Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin), which houses an upper and a lower chapel, both of which are lavishly decorated in blue and gold.

  • An amazing place for me coming here for the first time felt the breath of that time. Extraordinarily beautiful gate and the gate tower decorated with original tiles look fabulously! The place is also popular with our filmmakers-a few scenes from the films "Catherine" and "Mata Hari" filmed exactly in the Krutickom compound.

  • The farmstead is situated on the banks of the Moscow river, from Proletarian 5-10 can be reached on foot within minutes. The territory is fenced, but is not limited to, operating on the territory of the pod'vor'ja Temple, inside the magnificent frescoes. On a farmstead has several buildings of the 16-17 centuries. A number of merchants ' mansions and townhouses, all very harmoniously and looks as if time stood still. I really enjoyed walking through the metochion!

  • Visit worth it. 16-17 century old buildings. Compound is small, you can work around for 30 minutes with stops and photos. Strikes devastation, State buildings and infrastructure. And this despite the fact that with 49 89 years of 20 century, like, was restoration. In general the potential at a farmstead is, but the current state of the oppressing. But we ((((super power
