Favorite thing: There are 10 monasteries and convents in Mocow. Most of them were founded in the period from 1330 till 1400 in favour of victory in Kulikovo battle. Donskoy monastery is much younger. It was founded in 1591.

As it is situated in an industrial area it is not as popular for tourists to visit, though it is very interesting.
