  • Here is a nice walk, think, including Russia-here is the tomb of boyars Romanovs. There is a monument to the first and last emperors Romanov-Michael and Nicholas. There is laovčki, a large refectory, toilets. Vegetation is very pleasant, and trees and shrubs and flowerbeds with flowers. Have an Aviary with the squirrels, but we did not see them. Walk slowly, vglâdyvajtes′, ponder. Holy place!

  • With girlfriend decided to go in the morning on the territory of the monastery. Stunning 2-story Cathedral with a rich iconostasis and frescos. Delicious cakes in the refectory. Pleasant impressions from visiting the monastery

  • The first time was here in early summer, after visiting Krutitsky farmstead decided with colleagues visit Novospasskoye monastery. This is an amazing place! Even if you convinced atheist must-see it. The history of the monastery is fun and interesting. Founded in the 13 century by Prince Daniil, son of Alexander Nevsky. Considered to be the burial place of the Romanov remains are buried on its territory for about 70 members and relatives of the genus of the Romanovs. Here was a very large necropolis, which in the 20-IES was destroyed, now on its place the garden and some monuments, surviving after the pogrom, standing along the walls of the monastery. Here is buried the artist Roars, but where his tomb now nobody knows. Here is buried the nun Dosifei, it is believed that this August Tarakanova, daughter of Empress Elizabeth and Alexey razumovsky, which was forced to take the veil. Now in a monastery 25 monks and novices. But most surprising is the garden Novospasskoye monastery. They say that the wall around the monastery create unique microclimate that even ripen apricots and peaches, but here the unusual plants, just a garden of Eden. And when it blossoms, Magnolia, almonds, cherries, apricots and peaches are the same, add variety colors-the feeling that you are in the Botanical Garden. And surprisingly, behind the walls of the monastery, which is surrounded by roads with big traffic so calm and quiet that I don't want to leave. Two magical places on energy very close to each other-across the street! Come-kill immediately 2-x hares! Proletarskaya Metro just 10 minutes walk.

  • 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.
  • Ancient monastery. Beautiful architecture. Very comfortable and lots of color.
