The New Maidens or Novodevichy Convent is one of the most significant landmarks of Moscow after the Kremlin. Its special status and well-deserved worldwide reputation Novodevichy Convent owes to the interesting history of its creation as well as to the imprint it left in Russian history. The convent is situated in the southwest of Moscow, on a kind of peninsula, surrounded from three sides by the ribbon of the Moskva River. The complex of convent buildings includes 14 buildings as well as residential and auxiliary buildings, bell towers, and churches.
