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.

Arthur was recommended to me by a friend who used his services before, but my actual experience with him surpassed my friend's recommendations and exceeded my expectations. Arthur posses the following attributes: Always on time, safe driver, knows Moscow's roads very well, very knowledgeable tour guide be it in a museum or outside at any of the numerous tourist attractions. Combine this with his excellent English, and his pleasant personality, and you get all the ingredients required for a perfect vacation in Moscow.

The city is magnificent, and with Arthur's help, you get to see it from many angles, both during the day and at his famous night tours which should not be missed.

He is also a professional quality amateur photographer and will provide you with a dossier of artful picture taken during the trip. Nothing but Kudos and Echolades
