Novodevichiy Convent

By paulcr
This is Novodevichiy convent just on the outskirts of Moscow. Biult by Basil III in 1524 to commemorate his victory over the Lithuanians.
It was added to later by the half sister of Peter the great, Sophia. After Peter deposed her in 1689 he impisioned here here for the rest of her life.
Napolean tried to blow the place up in 1812 but was apparently foiled by the nuns who blew out the fuses. Smile

4 shot stitch.
