Danilov Monastery

  Danilovsky Val 22      (+7) 495 958 05 02     more than a year ago
This classical monastery, named after its founder, Alexander Nevsky's son Danil, has been in the news of late with the return of their original 18 church bells from Harvard in the US. The Soviets sold them off for scrap but a benevolent American, Charles Crane rescued them. The bells were recently returned due to the efforts (and cash no doubt) of Faberge egg rescuer, Viktor Vekselberg. Danilov Monastery was the last monastery to be closed under the Soviets and the first to be reopened under Gorbachev in 1983.

I think it was superb that the bells were returned to Danilov Monastry.It is almost a repeat of The Tikvin Icon.That was brilliant too.Good luck Jeremy Hart
