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, and whenever i am in Moscow i always make sure that i walk there for a visit. I have a lot of photos taken over the years and it's worth a stop. (Note: Dress appropriately)

The architecture is breathtaking

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.
