  • At Andrew's monastery-nice, eventful past. And now, in my opinion, quite sad. On the one hand the monastery back rich buildings, on the other hand, something like the Economic Court building hangs on top hotels trashed embankment reconstruction. But the monastery is very needed restoration. Holy place, and feels very convent strives to live, a lot of effort to apply here was Sunday school, so people came here. But money is not enough, it is immediately noticeable.

  • Legend has it that it was built in the 13th century, but the first documented traces tell us that the monastery was founded in 1648 around a pre-existing Saint Andrew Church, from which it takes its name. In the following years, between 1689 and 1703 religious buildings were erected that are part of it. Closed and partially demolished in 1923 by Bolshevichi, reopens in 1991 as a church and a monastery again in 2013. Easily accessible through Gorky Park, when it needs a bit of restoration: the walls of the churches are neglected and ruined, the gardens and the few flowers (which elsewhere are manicured) here grow up without any care. Already from the entrance (which is very spoiled) are a series of prohibitions, including to photograph: passes though the will in any case, given the conditions in which the entire monastery. Too bad.....

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.
