The Novodevichiy Convent ensemble is an outstanding monument of architecture of the XVI-XVII centuries. For years it served as a final shelter for women of noble and royal families who took the veil, though not always out of their free will, leaving only the Convent’s walls to be the guardians of their stories and secrets. You will also visit the famous Novodevichiy Cemetery, located alongside the convent, where many famous Russian cultural, military and political figures are buried – most recently, the first President of Russia, Boris Yeltsin and the cellist Mstislav Rostropovich.
