Moscow State University

Moscow State University

Moscow State University's imposing central building stands on the Sparrow Hills, dominating the campus and overlooking the Luzhniki district of the city. The enormous gothic skyscraper was commissioned by Stalin, along with 6 others dotted across Moscow known as "The Seven Sisters", and was built between 1949 and 1953 on the site, which Ivan the Terrible had deemed "too windy" for construction back in the 16th century. A total of sixty trains were employed to transport the building's steel frame from the eastern Ukrainian city of Dneiperpetrovsk and thousands of forced laborers worked on the building for a period of 4 years, under the ever watchful gaze of Stalin's favorite henchman, Lavrenty Beria.

We (couple in mid 30's) had a long 15 hour layover in Moscow on our way to SE Asia over Christmas break. We wanted a guided that could pick us up at the airport, show us the sites, & bring us back to catch our connection. Who wants the stress of trying to figure out taxis or public transportation when you don't have a lot of time, you have luggage, & your in the middle of a long haul flight with little sleep? You just don't need that kind of stress on vacation! Arthur was the perfect choice! He met us at the airport. We loaded our luggage into his car & we were off to the city! Arthur has a deep knowledge of history and was able to give us great insight into Russian history. He is also a really good photographer which I loved since I too greatly enjoy photography. He suggested great photos & angles & was also there to take shots of Michael & I together around the city. We now have great trip photos to share with family & friends. We visited Red Square, St. Basil’s Cathedral, Lenin’s Tomb, Moscow Kremlin ground and cathedrals, Armory museum, changing of the guard, Moscow Metro stations, took panoramas of Moscow Kremlin from river and after dark photographed some night scenes of Moscow. He took us to a great Ukrainian restaurant to eat. The hearty food was sooo good on a chilly Moscow day! At the end of the day Arthur drove us back to the airport & even walked us to our gate. We really had a great day in Moscow with Arthur. Don't spend your layover in the airport. Get out & experience this amazing city with a great guide & no worries!
