A classic example of Eastern Orthodox Church architecture
Andronnikov Monastery in Moscow
St. Andronicus Monastery of Our Saviour has the oldest surviving architectural monuments in Moscow. The monastery was founded in 1360, earlier than the present-day Kremlin walls. The key sight in the monastery is the stunningly beautiful Saviour Cathedral featuring the style of the 14th-15th century Moscow architecture. The museum of Russian icons dedicated to the Russian icon painter Andrei Rublev is located on the territory of the monastery. A quiet and pristine place within the boundaries of a busy metropolis, this monastery offers you an opportunity for a true cultural insight - the way Russia lived more than half a millennium ago.
