  • Novospásskij monastýr' — historically stavropegial monastery of the Russian Orthodox Church, located near the Metro station Proletarskaya (Krestyanskaya Zastava). The architectural ensemble was formed in the 17th-18th centuries. Situated on a hill and its dome visible from far away. Perfectly well appointed grounds with many different plants, many colors. There is also a Memorial Cross, and the basement of the Cathedral of the Saviour is the main tomb of the monastery. It stores the remains of family members of the Romanov Dynasty. This place is well worth a visit.

  • Having place in the Temple of novospasskiy relatively few tourists in Moscow near red square like the hustle and bustle and is none at all can be a quiet feel the atmosphere of the local temple. It is useful because it is within walking distance from the Metro station.

  • 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
