Novodevichy Convent (New Convent of the Maidens)



The New Convent of the Maidens, a cluster of 16 sparkling domes behind turreted walls, houses Moscow's most prestigious cemetery. It's the resting place of Chekhov, Eisenstein, Gogol, Khrushchev, Kropotkin, Mayakovsky, Prokofiev, Stanislavsky and Shostakovich. In Soviet times several very eminent people were buried here, perhaps most notably Krushchev, - whom the authorities judged unsuitable for the Kremlin wall. The convent itself was originally popular with noblewomen, who would often retire here, but it was also used as a prison for rebellious royals, including Peter the Great's half-sister and his first wife.
