Novodevichy Convent.
Built in 1542 by the Great Prince Vassily, the monastery initially was a fortress, which protected the road to Smolensk in the South-West of Russia. But later it was turned into a convent for tsarinas and princesses, many of which ended their days at the convent. Behind the wall of the convent there’s a cemetery for the prominent people of Russia, among which are Anton Chekhov, Peter Tchaikovsky, Mikhail Bulgakov, Nikita Khrushchev, Boris Yeltsin and Mstislav Rostropovich.
