Novodevichy


The inscriptions on the wall of the Novodevichy monastery: 

"Saint Sophia, help us to go to college. Vera and Sasha." 
"I wont evrything to be all right and so my mother recovered her eyes". 
"St. Sophia, help build a business. Petrov."

 Of course, it is prohibited to write on the walls of the monastery, founded in 1524, but somehow I do not feel any irritation reading these naive texts.

I am also attaching a photo of the layout of the monastery (click to enlarge) and in my following posts will continue about the Convent for sure.
