Small and not too old Church in Zamoskvorechye. But it is very remarkable and deserves a mandatory visit. First, it is not bad from an aesthetic point of view. In its design were involved such famous artists as architect Shchusev, artists Nesterov and Korin and...More

Renovated and repaired just recently, located in the historical part of Moscow - Zamoskvorechye. Small and elegant. Not just a regular church or convent but the social-medical service to sick children. Interesting history and noble service!

The main church of the convent (built 1908-1912) is an early work by Alexei Shchusev, who would become known much later as the architect of the Lenin's Tomb in the Red Square. The church is a striking example of the Russian Revival style popular in...More

Zamoskvorechye
It wouldn’t be a mistake to call Pyatnitskaya street
the main axis of this neighborhood – turn one
direction and you’ll find the Tretyakov Gallery in
Lavrushinsky Lane, turn another – a hip Scandinavian
restaurant. Old churches now embrace contemporary life
with style and grace. Going to Zamoskvorechye is like
visiting during the times when it was a medieval
