Krutitsy Metochion: to Plunge into the Middle Ages in the 21st Century

Krutitsy Metochion is an architectural monument of the XVII century. Its history began in the XIII century when the Krutitsky Monastery, lying at the intersection of the ancient princely roads to Kolomna and Ryazan, appeared on the bluff shore of the Moskva River. Later, the residence of the Bishops of Sarai and Don was arranged here.

Today, Krutitsy Metochion is red-bricked Metropolitan’s Chambers decorated with a "Peacock Eye" mosaic in the style of Russian majolica, as well as the Dormition Cathedral of Krutitsy and the Resurrection Passages. The Krutitsky Teremok of the 17th century, lined with multi-colored glazed tiles by Stepan Ivanov, is of particular beauty. Reconstruction of the Metochion is still underway: frescoes and iconostases in the temples are restored, as well as the interiors of the riverside Chambers are recreated. But the most valuable thing about Krutitsy Metochion is not so much the architecture, as an amazing feeling of falling out of the noisy reality of the metropolis into a wonderful oasis of old Moscow with its silence and calmness. You feel like visiting this place again and again to sense the touch of the remote ages at the medieval walls, on a cobblestone pavement.
