In old Moscow

Moscow, Ulitsa Varvarka, monastery of the Sign (17th century).
Ulitsa Varvarka (St. Barbara Street) is one of the more picturesque corners of Moscow with its succession of small churches and the old English Court, where since the 16th century a delegation of English merchants was allowed to reside. The building looks splendid, for the time being freed from its obtrusive Soviet-era neighbour, the now disappeared Rossiya Hotel.
