The Novodevichy Convent and Cemetery

A peace haven.

It's worth devoting a day of your journey going to visit this famous religious complex at which you can arrive by going to the metro stop called Sportivnaya. In this idyllic setting next to the Moskva River, you'll find a place that radiates peace, which is the convent and its surroundings declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage site. The city's most famous cemetery is also here where a large number of historic Russian personalities rest in peace. Don't miss the tombs of the famous Russian dancers, Galina Ulánova and Ekaterina Maximova; the writers, Nikolai Gogol and Alekséi Nikoláyevich Tolstói; the leaders, Nikita Khrushchev and Boris Yeltsin, and great leading figures such as Konstantín Stanislavski and Chéjov.
