  Novospasski monastery from the park below
by filip007

One of the fortified medieval monasteries that were built around Moscow to provide additional protection for the town.

Very quite and not so much visited monastery and cathedral, except for people going to the office. The central Transfiguration cathedral was built by the Romanov family and includes frescoes depicting the history of their family.

For more pictures you can see the travelogue Novospasski.

To get there, the metro station is Proletarskaya or Taganskaya, the address is Verkhny Novospasski proezd.
