Graves in the cemetery of the Novodevichy (New Maidens') Convent, Moscow, Russia, 1929. Standing on the bank of the Moskva River, the convent was founded in 1524 in commemoration of the conquest of Smolensk in 1514. The Bolsheviks closed the convent in 1922 and converted it into a museum, but in 1994, after the fall of the Soviet Union, nuns returned.
