Blue Domes with Gold Stars

Blue Domes with Gold Stars

The view on the beautiful domes of the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Virgin, which is located in Kremlin of Suzdal. These domes looks very imressive and magnetic...

The Nativity Cathedral is the principal temple of Suzdal and one of the latest monuments of the pre-Mongol architecture of the land of Vladimir and Suzdal. It was built inside the Kremlin between 1222 and 1225. Both its exterior and interior design are beautiful. Its facades are decorated with intricate ornaments From the mid 14ththrough the 18th centuries, Suzdal was the center of the eparchy of the Eastern Christian Church and its bishop resided in the Suzdal Kremlin.

One of the important features of the Cathedral is the harmonious combination with surrounding landscape. It stood on the site of the older building erected by Vladimir Monomach quite near to the northern ramparts of the fortress, with its south and east walls facing the town square.

At present the cathedral is under restorations and the rare things from inside were transferred into the bell-tower.

In 1993 the cathedral appears in the UNESCO's cultural list.

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.
