It was founded in 1282 by prince Daniel, son of Alexander Nevsky. In 1560 the monastery was renewed by Tsar Ivan the Terrible. The Novodevichy Convent was founded in 1524 by Vasili III. A new heyday in its history began with the coming to power of the Romanov dynasty. In 1812, Napoleon ordered to burn down the monastery, but the nuns did not let the fire flare up, preserving it for future people. The Sretensky Monastery was founded in 1397 at the meeting place of the icon of Our Lady of Vladimir. During atheism years, Monasteries were persecuted and turned into an ordinary secular building. In 1991 they were given back to the Russian Orthodox Church.
