The Novodevichy Theotokos-Smolensky Monastery is an Orthodox convent in Moscow, on the Maiden Field in the bend of the Moskva River, near Luzhniki, at the very end of historic Prechistenka (now Bolshaya Pirogovskaya Street).

It was founded by Grand Duke Vasily III on May 13, 1524 - in honor of the Smolensk Icon of the Mother of God "Hodegetria" - the main shrine of Smolensk, in gratitude for the possession of Smolensk in 1514. During the first two centuries of its existence, it served as a place of imprisonment of royal women.

The architectural ensemble of the monastery, which took shape in the 16th – 17th centuries, has not undergone significant changes since then. As an exceptional specimen of Moscow baroque, it was placed under the protection of UNESCO and declared the property of all mankind.

The existing monastery is jointly run by the Russian Orthodox Church and the State Historical Museum. Since 2010, the church museum of the Moscow diocese has been operating here.

The monastery houses the residence of the Metropolitan of Krutitsky and Kolomenskoye Juvenal, who has been managing the Moscow Regional Diocese since 1977.

Новоде́вичий Богородице-Смоленский монасты́рь — православный женский монастырь в Москве, на Девичьем поле в излучине Москвы-реки, близ Лужников, в самом конце исторической Пречистенки (в настоящее время Большой Пироговской улицы).

Основан великим князем Василием III 13 мая 1524 года — в честь Смоленской иконы Божией Матери «Одигитрия» — главной святыни Смоленска, в благодарность за овладение Смоленском в 1514 году. На протяжении первых двух столетий своего существования служил местом заточения царственных особ женского пола.

Архитектурный ансамбль монастыря, сложившийся в XVI—XVII веках, с тех пор не претерпел существенных изменений. В качестве исключительного по сохранности образца московского барокко поставлен под охрану ЮНЕСКО и объявлен достоянием всего человечества.

Действующий монастырь находится в совместном ведении Русской православной церкви и Государственного исторического музея. С 2010 года здесь действует церковный музей Московской епархии.

В монастыре находится резиденция митрополита Крутицкого и Коломенского Ювеналия, который с 1977 года управляет Московской областной епархией.
