  • I advise you to visit this monastery in kitai-Gorod district, will not be disappointed. On the territory of the monastery, you can visit the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist (inside is no less impressive than the outside), the chapel of St. John the Baptist, the Goblin Temple Elizabeth Chudotvoricy (not always). The buildings of the monastery are not perfect, but overall good condition. Compact territory, in view of the city centre, it is divided into parts radiating from the Cathedral to other buildings with stone arcades. On one of the arcades is a whole Tower, consisting of small bells. Outside, excellent views of the monastery are opened with elevation opposite from the Church of St. Vladimir. The convent was founded in the 15th century, but during the war of 1812 year practically was completely destroyed by fire during the fire of Moscow. At the end of 19-th century the monastery was rebuilt in the neo-Renaissance and, interestingly, repeating the style of the Florentine Basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore (note the original dome of the Cathedral of the monastery). Among the inhabitants of the monastery were many well-known personalities, it is worth mentioning the sinister Saltychihu, contained in the prison, and then found among nuns. That's such an interesting place can be found in the vicinity of kitai-Gorod. Many times passed by, but so much detail happened to consider for the first time.

Wonderful places in this part of the beloved city, always in a great mood and new impressions, walk one pleasure at any time of the year, and now the street has become a convenient and comfortable for a pedestrian. All good mood and new impressions!
