Wooden Churches Near Birches

Wooden Churches Near Birches

This photo of the wooden churches I took inside of the museum of wooden architecture and peasants' life in Suzdal. It was the evening and a bit dark, so the picture was not so good and I tried to correct levels, contrast, light, saturation and, of course, reduce noise here.

The museum of wooden architecture was organized in 1960-es, because Suzdal has not preserved such monuments. Wooden churches, houses and household buildings have been moved from the villages where they are perishing.

Two churches of the 18th century - the church of the Transfiguration and the church of the Resurrection are the compositional center of the museum. The church of the Transfiguration (in front of the picture) is of special interest as a sample of a multi-tiered beautifully decorated village church.

Hiro and I recently spent three days in Moscow to attend the 2006 Cup of Russia at which a friend of ours participated. From the moment we contacted Arthur via this website, he was completely professional. Our flights arrived and left during the middle of the night, but it was no problem to Arthur to collect us and bring us where we needed to go. He even helped us check-in at our hotel and when we left he brought us right to our check-in counter. Unfortunately, we didn't have very much time for sightseeing, but we had come all the way to Moscow, so we wanted to see a bit of the city. Arthur put together a short tour to take us around to some of the major sights (Church of Christ Our Saviour, Kremlin, Red Square, GUM, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, etc.). Being a photographer, he also knew the best vantage points to get some nice pictures. He was so knowledgable about Moscow and it was great to hear his commentary about the city. He also helped us very much in shopping for souvenirs and recommending reasonable places to eat. All in all, Arthur made our stay in Moscow so enjoyable and memorable and I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who visits Moscow.
