On the left bank of the Moskva River you’ll see the picturesque Bobrenev monastery with fanciful towers and temples that rise in the middle of the field. Openwork towers of the wall give the entire structure the elegant and lightweight look. According to the legend, the monastery was founded in 1381 by the hero of the Kulikovo Battle, Prince Dmitry Volyntsev, nicknamed Bobrok. In 1790 there appeared the main church of the monastery, the Church of the Nativity of the Virgin with the tent tower. Later, in 1861, came Theodore Church built in classical style.
