Domes of the Terem Palace

Domes of the Terem Palace

The Kremlin is the historical, spiritual and political heart of Moscow and the city's most famous landmark and tourist attraction.
In 1635-1662 the constructors of the royal Terem Palace, the craftsmen Bazhen Ogurtsov, Trefil Sharutin, Antip Konstantinov and Larion Ushakov, erected the Verkhospassky Cathedral (Higher Cathedral of the Savior). Like all domestic churches of the Terem Palace, it has a 17th century copper roof and 11 small drums with gilded cupolas.
This part of the Kremlin is particularly striking, with beautiful shining tiles in bays and on drums, and an ornamental frieze; inside the cathedral, there are extremely valuable icons painted by Fyodor Zubov, a carved wooden iconostasis and Royal Doors decorated with embossed silver.

Arthur is absolutely amazing. I was so lucky to discover his website as I was preparing for my first-ever trip to Russia. I read in detail all the recommendations from his other clients, and I studied his web site at length. It was clear he was a consummate professional, and after I emailed him with a few questions (that he replied to very quickly) I enthusiastically booked his services as follows: airport meeting/pick-up at Moscow’s SVO airport (flawless), three full days of driver/guide service throughout the city and countryside (comprehensive, well planned, and really fun!), a stunning Moscow Night Tour drive, and drop-off at SVO airport (where he came inside the airport and stayed with me until I was safely in the correct line, which would have been wildly confusing if I didn’t have the benefit of his help).

I can’t say enough good things about Arthur. His English is fantastic, he’s knowledgeable, professional, detail-oriented, customer-service focused beyond words, dependable, honest, friendly, and has a great sense of humor – I could go on and on but you get the idea. One thing that I particularly liked was the way he collected details about what I was interested in seeing and doing. Then, he added his own thoughts and recommendations and together we created a customized tour plan for each day that far exceeded all of my expectations. He also demonstrated a brilliant ability to adjust on the fly if I wanted to modify the plan—no request was too difficult for him. One thing really stands out: since I was traveling alone, Arthur even brought along his camera to take pictures of me as we were touring around so I could be in the pictures. That meant so much to me.

In short, Arthur’s enthusiasm for what he does—and for his country—made my trip memorable and magical. Hiring Arthur will make your next trip to Russia even more spectacular, and I give Arthur and his services the highest recommendation possible.

Thank You Arthur!
