The Danilovskii Monastery was founded by the Orthodox Prince Daniil Alexandrovich in 1282. It is probably Moscow's oldest monastery. In 1591 the Danilovskii Monastery played a crucial part in defending the capital of Rus from raids by the Crimean Tartars led by Khan Kazy Gire. Today it is the official residence of the head of the Russian Orthodox Church.
