Novodevichy Convent Field Trip
As we managed to get into a break in the rainy weather we went to Novodevichy Convent and park.
It is always a good idea to have outdoor trips in the summer and Novodevichy is a great combination of a fortress with a story, a Russian cultural sight and a great green area.
Impressed by the story of Princess Sofia that was imprisoned in one of the towers of the convent we all touched the famous tower and made a wish.
We quietly walked through the Convent grounds, visited a church and learned about the lives of the Convent inhabitants.
On the way back each of us got a magic bell – the bell that will protect you anywhere you are.
