Spaso-Andronikov Monastery

  Andronevskaya pl. 10      (+7) 495 911 45 02     more than a year ago

Originally founded in 1320, this monastery is famous for its icon painting monk, Andrei Rublyev who lived and died here in the early 14th century. Rublyev is the poster boy of Russian icon painting having worked on the icons of the Kremlin's Cathedral of Annunciation and other churches. Today there is the Cathedral of the Saviour, and the museum named after Rublyev is housed in the adjacent Chapel of St. Michael Archangel. It's about half the size of Novodevichy and it has a quarter of its crowds.
