Krutitskoe Podvorye, Moscow

4.8
Still functioning as an ecclesiastic estate of the Russian Orthodox Church, Krutitskoe Podvorye has survived dramatic periods of upheaval and neglect over the centuries. Passing from the church to the military in the late 1700s, the complex was used as a storehouse, barracks, and prison; it functioned as a museum during the late Soviet period, and finally fully returned to the church in 1996. The complex contains two churches, the metropolitan's (bishop's) residence and gallery, a riverside dormitory, and a set of 19th-century wooden houses. Don't miss the intricately detailed ornamentation and holy icons of the Dormition Cathedral (Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin), which houses an upper and a lower chapel, both of which are lavishly decorated in blue and gold.

  • I advise to visit. The construction is really old and works like a church. You can go there. But the second level of the ladder because of reconstruction does not work. And by the way, the reconstructors are oral, just soaked the wall and painted bricks. Therefore 4.

  • The oldest Krutyske farmstead (the first mentions of the 1372 year), blossoming as a monument of old Russian architecture was in the 17th century. It's a cozy place. Here is preserved and operates Uspensky Cathedral, the Holy Gate with Krutytskyy Teremkom, which is decorated with the frescoes that I was interested most, the wall-crossing, metropolitan Chambers, the Order chambers and quite old summer quays with Views of the river and once on the Kremlin. There was also a barracks period, even a prison, where at different times "arrived" and Gerzen and Beria. I advise to walk.
