Description

Situated a short walk from the Luzhniki Sports Stadium, in a tranquil southern suburb of Moscow,
inside a bend in the Moscow River, the Convent's leafy gardens are a pleasure to stroll in during
the summer months and a welcome retreat from the bustle of the city. Most of the capital's monasteries
were built between the 13th and 16th centuries, not merely as religious centers but as fortified structures
with the express purpose of defending the city from Tatar and Pole attacks.
Novodevichy Cemetery, the most famous cemetery in Moscow, was inaugurated in 1898, when it was judged that
there were too many burials within monastery walls. One of the first notables to be buried there was Anton
Chekhov, whose gilded tomb is the work of Fyodor Shekhtel. Today, the cemetery holds the tombs of Russian authors,
musicians, playwrights, and poets, as well as famous actors, political leaders, and scientists.

Private English-speaking guide service (others on request);
