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 found Arthur's website completely by chance, but I am so glad that I did. I was traveling with my Mom who is in her 70's, and part of the time with my newly adopted 15 month old daughter. Arthur was very caring and considerate of all of us. I needed some medicine for my daughter and he went out of his way to find it. He planned the sightseeing so my Mom wouldn't be out in the cold too long and he made sure she didn't slip on the snow. He arranged our time so that I was able to get to see the places I wanted to see that were outside of Moscow. He is an excellent driver and a wonderful, and very knowledgeable tour guide. He is charming and fun to be with, punctual and completely reliable. We felt like we knew him for much longer than only a few days. I would highly recommend Arthur and would love to travel with him again in the future.
