Probably founded in 1315 because it is already mentioned in old documents dated 1317. Demolitions, reconstructions, renovations and modifications took place during the centuries but the worst happened during the bolsheviks period: the monastery was officially closed down in 1918 even if an "underground" religious community kept operating and the 9 monks who had remained faithful were persecuted and eventually...

This is a beautiful monastic complex, with three temples still used for worship, built in different ages. The place is right in front of the museum of modern art. No ticket here. The atmosphere is like suspended, and far from that of the noisy neighborhood where the place is. Some ongoing restoration work, but the place is mainly in good... More

You can use this stop also for a lunch break. They service nothing special there, but it is interesting to eat simple Russian food inside a Monastery. You should also try the bakery. Delicious!!!

The Monastery of St Peter! Not many people knows this place but this is an iconic place. The monastery is believed to have been founded in the 1320s by Saint Peter of Moscow; now old, battered, over the years renovation started and stopped. I have ventured in countless times since i use to live just about 100 yards from here,... More

We passed by this place and decided to have a look. While it definitely needs a lot of restoration work, the site contains a number of beautifully decorated old churches, some nicer than in more touristic sites. Would benefit from English descriptions, but really worth a stop if you are in the neighbourhood.

Staying in Tverskaya

Neighbourhood Profile
Tverskaya
Tverskaya can’t be discovered with just a first glance, the neighborhood is shaped around a long street populated with well-known shops and brands. But it’s more than shopping that makes this place interesting. Take a few steps into the streets running parallel to the main artery to discover the charm just behind the mighty Stalinist style architecture. Comfy European pedestrian streets Bolshaya Dmitrovka or Stoleshnikov lane are a great place to start. Locals can be found here working, eating, shopping, resting and going to the Bolshoi Theatre in the evening.
