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.

I was in Moscow for two weeks on business. During this time I employed Arthur on a daily basis to take me to my numerous meetings around the city during the day as well as in the evening when I visited restaurants and bars. His knowledge of the city is excellent and he was able to find every address on time. He was always punctual and I found him pleasant and honest.

Using Arthur is much cheaper than using regular Moscow taxis which are very expensive and unreliable - on my previous trips to Moscow I used regular taxis and when I compared my expenses I found that using Arthur on a daily rate worked out cheaper than taking taxis. He is also a fun companion if you are travelling on your own. Highly recommended
