Photographer's Note

One of the most interesting monasteries around Moscow - New Jerusalem Resurrection Monastery. It was founded by patriarch Nikon in the middle of 17th century, at the same time the Resurrection Cathedral (shown on photo) was built as a local copy of the Holy Sepulture.
The Monastery was completely ruined by Nazis during WWII and since 50-ies is beeing rebuilt. Yet there's much to be restored.
A great place for one day trip from Moscow on a sunny day.
