Overview

The monastery was originally founded in 1360. Its name comes from the monk Andronik, who was the monastery's first abbot. The most notable resident of the monastery was legendary icon-painter Andrei Rublev - the site functions as a museum in his name (the Rublev Museum of Early Russian Culture and Art). After the revolution, the territory was used at different times as a prison camp and worker's residence before becoming host to the museum. It may yet become a working monastery again some time in the future.
