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.

My daughter and I made a quick trip to Moscow...and used Arthur exclusively during our visit. He handled airport transfers, to/from Domodedovo and served as our guide for 2 and 1/2 days. He is very knowledgeable about the city's history - and custom tailored an itinerary based on our interests. Beyond the "must see sites (Kremlin, St. Basil,s, Red Square etc.) - we also visited the town of Sergiyev Posad (very worthwhile) and also took Arthur's tour of Moscow by night - which I highly recommend. As noted by other reviewers, Arthur is a very accomplished photographer - and the pictures he takes are a real bonus for his clients. I would highly recommend Arthur as a guide when visiting Moscow.
