Cathedral of the Assumption

Cathedral of the Assumption

The Cathedral of the Assumption is the Kremlin's oldest and most important church. It stands on the site of Moscow' s first stone cathedral built by Ivan Kalita In the 14th century. The largest edifice of its time in Russia, the Cathedral of the Dormition was built in 1475-1479 under the supervision of the Italian architect Aristotile Fioravanti after the model of the 12th-century Cathedral of the Dormition in the ancient Russian city of Vladimir. A year after the construction of the cathedral, Moscow became the capital of the Vladimir-Suzdal principality, and later the capital of all Rus. The cathedral's history clearly reflects its important role as Russia's central church for more than 400 years.

I highly recommend Arthur Lookyanov as a professional and reliable personal driver-guide in and around Moscow. I spent two full days with Arthur, the first in touring two towns in Russia's famous Golden Ring and the second in touring within Moscow proper. Also, he provided round trip car service between my hotel and business meetings on two other days. In all this, I found Arthur to be very friendly, knowledgeable, energetic, and totally committed to client satisfaction. He planned my itineraries very thoroughly, but was also flexible and inventive in changing "on the fly" to meet my interests. A big bonus is that Arthur is also a professional photographer and I now have literally 100s of great photos of my experiences, at no extra cost. Finally, his Honda CR-V is relatively new, well maintained, and quite comfortable. All in all, my time with Arthur was very enjoyable and educational, and I will certainly hope to engage him again should I return to Moscow. Many thanks, Arthur, and kind regards!
