New Jerusalem Monastery
Far from the crowds, yet enticingly close to Moscow, this grandiose monastery is surrounded by captivating Russian countryside, a marvelous setting for walks. On a long summer's day, this would be an ideal afternoon outing from Moscow. It's close enough that you could devote the morning to seeing city sights, then spend the afternoon here in the country.
