Bibendum
You can't help but be dazzled by the interior decoration of Our Lady of Smolensk, where the greatest talents of the 17C found expression. Simon Ushakov and Feodor Zubov made the delicate icons, Klim Mikhailov and Osip Andreev created the remarkable iconostasis, and Nikita Morev and Alexei Ekimov designed the wrought-iron gate. In addition to the 16C murals, note the tombs of Sophia Alekseyevna and Eudoxia Lopukhina, respectively the half-sister and first wife of Peter the Great, both forced by him to withdraw to this monastery.
