  • Unfortunately, during the Soviet period the monastery is very badly damaged. However, remained part of the fortress wall and several towers, one of which is near to the river — is called the "Muzzle". He was named not by similarity of the upper part of the firearm, and named Tatar Governors killed the boom from this tower.

  • On the territory of the Moscow order of 17 monasteries, this stands out from other of its defensive structure and huge towers, so huge that one wonders how it could then build, it was built in the year 1520. Next to it stands the Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin which buried relics of overexposure and Osljabi-heroes of the battle of Kulikovo, just according to legend on the territory of the monastery are buried all the soldiers fallen in the battle. If you want to get a lot of positive emotions, then visit the stands clearly!

  • According to ancient Chronicles reveal that the Simonov monastery constantly served "shield Moscow candle voronitskyi". Over the years of its existence the Simonov monastery more than once assumed the onslaught of the enemy hordes, tartar raids, and in the time of troubles was wrecked and destroyed almost to the ground. Spared him and Soviets! In 1930 year power recognized that part of ancient structures on the territory of the monastery can be preserved as historic monuments, but the Cathedral and the walls should be demolished. All that remained of the former greatness of this: the southern wall with three towers: angular "Muzzle", pentagonal design Forge "and" round "Salt", "new" refectory with the Church of St. Spirit, a fraternal body, the "old" refectory, receiver and outbuildings.
