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 a fantastic help to my parents and my mother in-law when they visited Moscow. My mother in-law has some mobility issues and Arthur could not have been more helpful in assisting with the wheelchair, ensuring that guards opened gates so they could drive into the red square and Victory Park, and that my mother in-law was able to see as much of Moscow as anyone else. My parents also had a great time and enjoyed Arthur's knowledge of the history of Moscow, as well as his excellent photography skills. Thank you Arthur!
