Krutitskoye Podvor'ye, Moscow

4.8
Still functioning as an ecclesiastic estate of the Russian Orthodox Church, Krutitskoye Podvor'ye 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.

  • Krutitskoe the patriarchal farmstead is located near the Metro station Taganskaya. 15 -20 minutes walk. This is a great place for a quiet holiday away from the bustle of the city. Beautiful architecture absorbs parts of the temple, built in the late 1600 's, can be considered infinite. The place is perfect for artists who simply have chosen. And another on-site kiosks which sell very tasty pastries. Recommend to visit.

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.
