The monastery is composed of buildings that have been constructed during different time periods since the 14th century. The information written by each of the churches contains a brief history.

I always liked this monastery. I visited it often because I lived nearby. By Kozitsky lane I came unto the Bolshaya Dmitrovka, just across was the perpendicular street, named after known actor Moskvin (currently, Petrovsky lane) with the house in which lived the poet Esenin,...More

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...More

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...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!!!

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...More

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
