New Maidens’ (Novodevichy) Monastery
New Maidens’ (Novodevichy) Monastery


 The Monastery was founded by the Great Prince Vasilii III at 1524 in the honor of Our Lady of Smolensk Icon. There is a legend:   during the siege of Smolensk in 1514 Great Prince of Russia asked the Icon to help him to give back the city of Smolensk under the domain of Russia and promised to build the Maiden Monastery in the case of success. The next day Smolensk was captured and after 10 years Vassilii had kept his promise. There is also another legend which says that the time of the Monastery foundation was in a strange way concurring with the divorce process of Vasilii and his wife Solomonia, who had do take the veil  and become the sister of New Maiden Monastery after the divorce. A custom to send unflavored wives to New Maiden Monastery before to make a new marriage became a tradition among the Russian aristocrats, that’s why New Maiden Monastery is also known as the “convent of the broken hearts”.
