Novodevichiy



Yet another photo of Novodevichiy Convent. As I told you earlier, it's one of the oldest monasteries not only in Moscow (and in Russia). It miraculously survived Napoleon's army intrusion in 1812, October Revolution a century later and even 70 years of Soviet Era.

The cemetery at Novodevichiy is also a point of interest: till our days it remains a place where most distiguished people find their final abode.
