Nikolo-Peshnoshsky Monastery

One of the most ancient monasteries of Moscow Russia was founded in the second half of the 14th century by a disciple of the holy St. Sergius of Radonezh by the holy reverend Methodius of Peshnoshsky. The first buildings of Methodius led, carrying the logs along the ford on their own shoulders, “pesh nosha”, i.e. on foot. The river Peshnosha is still flowing in monitors. Wooden buildings of those years of course did not reach our times. Today, from the civilian buildings in the monastery, the buildings of the end of the 17th century are preserved - the superior, treasury and fraternal buildings, which were heavily rebuilt at the beginning of the 19th century. The walls and towers of the monastery were erected between the years 1685-1700, and the final construction of the towers was completed after 1734. In May 1553, Ivan the Terrible came to the monastery on a pilgrimage. It was here where his important conversation took place with the President of Baccian. Peter I was here too. But in Soviet times in the monastic buildings, the first was the cadre of the museum, then the Dom of the social workers, and after 1966 - the psychic international, who left these walls only in 2013. In 2008, Karen Shaxnazarov shot the movie “The ward number 6” by A.P. Chekhov in the walls of the monastery, and real patients took part in the filming. The monastery zoo is inhabited by camels, African ostriches, deer, goats, black-fronted foxes, pheasants, squirrels, hares, and peacocks.
