Zachatievsky Convent


I know that the number of churches in this blog is overwhelming, that it is not religious blog, that Moscow is big enough to find objects for interesting photos in thousands places, but I post the photo of church again. Just can not help it. So beautiful in the setting autumn sun.

The man in orange t-shirt is worker from Uzbekistan, Central Asia. So many of them are wage labourers in Moscow, doing simple and cheap work, cleaning, restoring, improving the city. I can not imagine how Moscow look without them in yards, roads and streets.

The church belongs to Zachatievsky convent. The convent was founded in 1584, plundered and closed in 1925 and resumed in 1995.
