Photographer's Note

This picture I took recently near Novodevichy (New Maiden's) Convent right on the time when starting dark. The arhitecture of all churches and walls here is very beautiful and looks magnificance at nights....

During for 400 years the Novodevichy Convent was the witness and the participant of important historical events, connected with the names of Ivan the Terrible, Boris Godunov, Sofia and Peter I. The architectural ensemble of the convent was formed by the end of 17th century and till now remains one of the best in Russia.
The convent is rather like a miniature Kremlin. Russian architects created a festive ensemble by combining traditional Russian architecture with some compositional devices of the Moscow baroque architecture.
