Description of the Novodevichy Convent

 

Novodevichy Convent is a medieval Russian Orthodox monastery that was found in 1524 by Moscow prince Vasili III to commemorate his conquest of formerly independent Smolensk principality. Thus another alternative name for the monastery is Bogoroditse (Mother of God)- Somelnsky (of Smolensk) Monastery. At the time of its construction it stood outside of Moscow city limits. Its walls part of the defences of the Russian capital. In fact parts of the original moat have been preserved and today serves as a picturesque pond.
