The dam tower of the Novodevichy Convent

At the end of the XVII century, Peter I's sister Sophia unsuccessfully organized a riot against her brother, the rightful heir to the throne. After the suppression of the uprising, it was imprisoned by Peter in the tower [of the Novodevichy Convent] (http://kudago.com/msk/place/novodevichij-monastyr/). In documents that have survived to this day, Sophia is described as an extremely intelligent and energetic person, whose positive qualities were subject to an all-consuming thirst for power. A 40-year-old woman was forced to spend many years in captivity, and her energy literally permeated the stone walls of the tower, which have since had inexplicable power.

There is another explanation for the magical power of the Naprudnaya Tower. In 1920, the Bolsheviks who seized power arrived at the monastery to close it and seize all valuables. The abbess of Novodevichy Leonid collected the most valuable shrines and walled herself up with them in a dungeon located under the Naprudnaya Tower.

Today, when approaching the Naprudnaya Tower, you can feel the vibration emanating from it. Outside, the tower wall is covered with pleas for help addressed to the spirit of Princess Sophia. In addition, many visitors press their hands against the stones of the tower, while focusing deeply on their desire. Notes with requests for well-being, health, love are laid in the cracks formed in the masonry.
