Cathedral in Byzantium style

Cathedral in Byzantium style

Today everyone who goes to the Domodedovo airport (the largest airport of the capital) or arriving through this gate to Moscow, can see the breathtaking panoramic view of the Holy Trinity Cathedral. You can observe the majestic multi-domed temple with its belfry, chapel, towers and the bridge gate connecting it to the Kashirskoe highway.

This is the Cathedral of the Holy Life-giving Trinity which was built on the 1,000 year anniversary of the Christening of Russia. It was built approximately one year ago in Orehovo-Borisovo which is in the southern part of the city.

The decision to start construction of the temple was confirmed in 1988, however because it was necessary to restore some of the relics and artifacts construction of the temple was postponed. Finally, on September 1, 2001 the most holy Patriarch Aleksiy II preformed services and construction of the temple began. On May 19, 2004, it was ceremoniously opened and Patriarch Aleksiy II consecrated the new temple.

Some history: The year 988 was a pivotal year in Russian history, for that is when this country adopted Christianity. Prince Vladimir, the sovereign ruler of Olden Russia, was christened in the Crimena town of Hersoness, which in those times belonged to Byzantium. At his decree, all of his subjects, also adopted Christianity. Thus, in the 10th century Kievskaya Rus (Russia, Ukraina) became a country of Orthodox Christians.

Arthur was so awesome! We spent 3 days in Moscow (the greatest city in the world!) with Arthur, and had the absolute best time!
We went on a Night Tour (and as a BIG BONUS got to celebrate Russia's football victory over Holland with the entire city), as well as a souvenir shopping excursion and a day trip to Sergiev Posad. Throughout it all, not only was Arthur punctual, reliable, and conscientious, he was SO much fun! He was positive and energetic, and absolutely sincere in sharing his knowledge and love for his beautiful city, not to mention being quite an impressive driver in Moscow's crazy streets.
AND - not only was he an outstanding guide and driver, he is the most amazing photographer! It was so nice to have someone to take our picture by all of these beautiful places, a service that you certainly won't get from anyone else!
I did tons of research before this trip, and had checked several other websites, but kept coming back to Arthur's website, pouring over his beautiful pictures, and reading all of the other client reviews, After using his services, I can say that I absolutely and wholeheartedly agree with all the other great reviews, and would highly recommend him to everyone. I can't wait to return to Moscow and see him again! Arthur was an absolute joy and delight, and helped make our trip an amazing trip of a lifetime!
