Vysoko-Petrovsky Monastery

This is the above-gate Church of Vysoko-Petrovsky Monastery in Moscow. It's located on the city center and is known since 1377, at least. During Soviet Era the monastery was closed and for a long time forsaken. However, in 1992 it was open again and several years ago the restoration began, so now some of the buildings (like this church) are available for full observation.
