Lonely Planet review

This monastery is the second-oldest in Moscow; it was founded in 1296 by Prince Daniil, son of Alexander Nevsky. Stefan, one of the first abbots of the monastery, was the brother of Sergei Radonezhsky, who was patron saint of Russia and founder of the Trinity Monastery of St Sergius. The current Epiphany Cathedral was constructed in the 1690s in the Moscow baroque style.
