The development of an Orthodox tourist infrastructure in the capital was the construction of a hotel for pilgrims on the territory of the Pokrovsky Monastery. The history of the restoration of the monastery, after its transfer in 1995 to the Russian Orthodox Church, is taking place in the eyes of modern Muscovites. Every day it is visited by pilgrims from all regions of Russia and from abroad. Many want to attend special services that take place over several days.The conditions of stay in the metropolis do not allow everyone to overcome long distances from the monastery to the actual place of residence, therefore the construction of the hotel partially solves the problems with the accommodation of pilgrims. Patron of the monastery is St. Matrona of Moscow, whose relics have been in it since 1999. Simultaneously with the hotel passes and the construction of the chapel of Sts. Peter and Fevronia, where the 15th anniversary of the transfer of the relics of the holy, Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill laid the consecrated stone in the foundation of the building. Global-Stroy LLC, which works together with Firma Galeas LLC, is obliged to complete the construction by January 2015.
