Krutitskoe Podvorye, Moscow

4.8
Still functioning as an ecclesiastic estate of the Russian Orthodox Church, Krutitskoe Podvorye has survived dramatic periods of upheaval and neglect over the centuries. Passing from the church to the military in the late 1700s, the complex was used as a storehouse, barracks, and prison; it functioned as a museum during the late Soviet period, and finally fully returned to the church in 1996. The complex contains two churches, the metropolitan's (bishop's) residence and gallery, a riverside dormitory, and a set of 19th-century wooden houses. Don't miss the intricately detailed ornamentation and holy icons of the Dormition Cathedral (Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin), which houses an upper and a lower chapel, both of which are lavishly decorated in blue and gold.
