Overview

Undoubtedly one of the most elegant architectural sights in Moscow, the Danilovskii Monastery was founded by the Orthodox Prince Daniil Alexandrovich way back in 1282. It is now the official residence of the head of the Russian Orthodox Church. The monastery survived the revolution only until 1930, after which the grounds became a borstal. Holy services are once again conducted in all three churches of the monastery and the whole complex has been fully renovated.
