Novodevichy monastery

Novodevichy monastery

Moscow, Novodevichy monastery.
Founded in 1524, Novodevichy is not only one of the most beautiful fortified monasteries south of Moscow, it's also one of the best preserved architectural ensembles of the area. While the cathedral dates from the year of foundation, most buildings are from the 17th century. The 72m high bell-tower dating from 1690 is a supreme example of Moscow baroque architecture.
