Pavlovskaya Sloboda Estate

The Church of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Pavlovskaya Sloboda estate is one of the most "attractive" sights and interesting notable historical sites that you should definitely visit in the vicinity of Moscow. The history of this village goes back many centuries.
