The Holy Trinity Novo-Golutvin Convent is located on the bank of the Moskva-River in the centre of the Kremlin area.
For more than 450 years, from 1350 to 1799, the territory was the residence of bishops. But in 1799 the Kolomna diocese was transferred to Tula. In 1880 the brotherhood from the Staro-Golutvin Epiphany Monastery came to the former residence and it got a new name – Novo-Golutvin. In 1920 the Monastery was closed and functioned as a hospital, a dormitory and as sewing and cinema workshops.
The revival of the Monastery began in 1989. It became a convent – the first in the Moscow diocese. Its prior-mother is Superior Ksenia. About 90 nuns from Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus and the Ukraine live there. And not long ago here were nuns from Holland, Finland, Hungary and Poland. The ensemble of the Convent includes the Trinity and Pokrov Churches of the 17th century in the style of Moscow baroque, the Bell Tower of the 19th century classicism, bishop and refectory buildings and corner towers. A considerable part of them was reconstructed by the famous Russian architect M.F.Kazakov.
Nowadays the Convent looks beautiful, attracts thousands of tourists and lives a very busy life, both religious and everyday. It houses a number of workshops where weaving, embroidering, wood carving, icon painting, ceramics and jointer crafts are developed. Besides there is a Boarding School for orphaned and abandoned children, a Medical Care Centre and Animal Fans Club in the Convent. Here you can see very unusual pets – pheasants and the camel Sinai – a present from the Baikonur Space Centre. The nuns also breed sheep-dogs and grow vegetables and fruit. The Holy Trinity Novo-Golutvin Convent has become a unique place in Kolomna that shares its spiritual life with visitors.
