I love to come to this small Monastery during any season. It is quiet, peaceful and pleasant for your eyes and soul. Historical and inspirational place! Small museum along with memory for famous icon painter Rublev makes this place memorable and good reason to visit!

The monastery is a lovely and quiet place to be, studded with 18th century buildings. But the deepest impression is, no doubt, its main architectural treasure – the Savior's Cathedral, which happens to be the oldest surviving building in Moscow, constructed in the early 15th...More
