  • The ancient monastery of Moscow with a very rich history. Tomb of boyars Romanovs. Back in the 90-ies moved the ashes of Grand Prince Sergei Alexandrovich, who was killed in the year 1905. He was Governor of Moscow and husband of St. Elizabeth fedorovna, mother sister Alexandra, wife of the last Tsar. In his memory stands at the entrance is a beautiful wooden cross and a chapel. The wall behind the bell tower stands a chapel in honor of buried here nun Dosifei, which many believe Princess Tarakanova. In the building of the belfry in 30 years was the NKVD archives. Many remember those walls. And another famous monastery of the miracle-working icon "Vsetsaritsa" which was brought from Athos. It is believed that it cures cancer.

  • Amazing monastery, which has preserved its ancient fortifications, incidentally the oldest in Moscow. Recommend to visit, only better in the summer, as the main temple is closed in winter.

  • Great place for thoughtful walks.
  • Absolutely breathtaking! Such a beautiful and quite place in Moscow! Will definitely visit again! Highly recommended!
  • Of all the Moscow monasteries this one I like most. It is situated on a hill at a river bank. Times ago it was a town boundary here. Even now surprising silence reigns inside the walls of the monastery, as though Moscow is non-existent.
  • From prison to the Russian Orthodox church. Orthodox houses of Lord all over the world.
  • well done! great patio. Always very clean and pleasant stroll
