We ended up not even going into the convent as you still had to pay (full!) entrance fee and the works were so extensive that you couldn't see much at all. It's a bit of a walk from the nearest metro station, but it's a...More
Novodevichy Monastery is a very beautiful monastery complex located in the surroundings of Moscow, the main city of Russian Federation. We came here in November-2017 and pitifully the main parts of the complex were in works, so we could not visit some of the buildings/museums....More
We came here as part of a tour. Unfortunately, the church/convent next door is completely covered in scaffolding and is therefore nothing to look at. Our guide took us around the attached cemetery and showed us quite a variety of graves of people who were...More

We couldn't visit the convent due to construction, but the cemetery was absolutely fascinating. It was a combination of a who's-who's of famous people and an art collection. Every grave was unique, and many ethnicities/religions/nationalities were represented.
The convent area represents one of the more sacred areas in Moscow.

Khamovniki could be considered a city of its own – here it’s possible to find some of Moscow’s most important cultural institutions such as the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, the Novodevichy Convent and Trubetskikh Estate, great sport locations such as Luzhniki stadium and aqua complex, and long and beautiful Luzhniki embankment. Pick your preferred form of transport to explore the area – bicycle or
river cruise during the summer and taxi in winter as many of the great places are situated beyond a short walk.

The Metro is fine, you get a train on the red line ( Sokolnicheskaya ) to Sportivnaya and it's a 5 minute walk from there plus you get to admire some great architecture and the trains come very frequently. Be warned the cathedral may not be open and there is a lot of building and repair work going on. Don't forget to look in on the adjacent cemetery .
