Novodevichy Convent

Moscow, Russia
4.7 / 12
The oldest convent in the capital. According to legend, it stands on the spot where, during the reign of the Golden Horde, girls were selected for sending into slavery. The monastery was founded in 1524 by Vasily III. Subsequently, tonsure in the monastery was taken by many royal people, as well as girls from princely and boyar families. Many did not come here of their own free will. In architectural terms, the monastery is a real fortress with powerful walls.
