Silver domes and bell tower

Silver domes and bell tower

The church of the Smolenskaya Icon of the Mother of God was built in Suzdal in 1696-1706, and restored by Olga Guseva in 1960. The church has many features in common with other buildings belonging to the same period. The cornice of indented cut stone, balusters and small kokoshniks, resembles that on the Emperor Constantine Church, while the broad wall surfaces with three symmetrically placed windows remind one of the Ascension Church in the Saint Alexander Monastery.
The Church's bell-tower belongs to the period of Russian Classical architecture at the end of the eighteenth century.

As you can read in the comments on either side of this testimonial, Arthur's many clients have been so satisfied and enthusiastic about his services that they seem to compete to articulate the best and most impressive recommendation of his services. We will not be an exception. Arthur was outstanding as a tour guide, driver, photographer and translator. We saw the most important sites in Moscow and outside of Moscow. One of the highlights of our trip was Moscow by night which was an incredible introduction to this beautiful city. With Arthur’s help, we saw sites that are rarely available for viewing such as the Kremlin Palace. In addition, Arthur also showed us sites that are rarely visited such as the Gorky House, Tolstoi House, Chaliapin House and Scriabin House, which gave us an insight into how famous Russian writers, opera singers and composers lived. All of these visits made our tour of Moscow richer and more insightful. Arthur seems to know every street in one of the largest cities in the world, and every short cut to avoid the many traffic jams in Moscow. With his knowledge of Moscow and a genuine desire to satisfy his clients’ wishes, Arthur assured that we made the most of our time in this exciting city. As an avid photographer, he documented our entire visit to Moscow with photos that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. And finally, Arthur’s extensive knowledge of art, architecture, history and religion enhances each tour. We strongly encourage anyone interested in an in-depth tour of Moscow to consider Arthur because he will exceed your expectations.
