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.

The best thing that we did to help with jetlag was booking a Moscow by night tour with Arthur. We saw and learned so much in just a few hours with Arthur. I was greatly impressed with his knowledge and enthusiasm of the history of each point. What a beautiful city and all the more charming with a guide like Arthur! Spasiba Arthur!

To Arthur:
Thank you so much for 2 wonderful, wonderful experiences during our stay in Moscow. We are sorry that we weren't able to get you tickets to the show but it was very very oversold and we were not able to get anything. All of us had a great time and I just wanted to thank you again.

Sincerely, Craig (Dancer of the Mark Morris Dance Group).
