Hotel Rossia and River Tram

Hotel Rossia and River Tram

Hotel Rossia is one of the largest hotels in Europe. It was built in 1964-1967 by architect Chechulin. Located on the bank of the Moscow-River (Moskva-River) in close vicinity to the Red Square and the famous “Cathedral of St. Basil the Blessed”. The hotel has an advantageous central location and easy access to the political, business and cultural centers of Moscow. It has the best view of Kremlin and the Red Square. Since the 70th of the XXth century the \"Rossia\" Hotel was registered in \"Guinness book of Records\" as the hugest world\'s hotel. The hotel has 21 floors and 3200 rooms including 245 half-suites.

By order of Moscow Government, in summer of 2006 they’l start demolishing of Rossia Hotel. Its place will be occupied by new small hotels for 2000 rooms united in one architectural ensemble. New buildings instead of hotel Rossia will be built up to the end of 2008.

\"River Trams\" is given name by Muscovites of the small passenger river boats, which float on the Moscow-river every half hour at summer season.

This was my fourth time in Moscow, but with Arthur, my husband and I saw a different side of it. Among highlights were the subway tour, dinner at Durdin, the sculpture garden where the old statues of Lenin and Stalin are now standing, the Moscow by night tour that ended at the elaborate food emporium, and visiting Christ the Savior cathedral during a service; we would not have realized the importance of the rebuilding to the Russian people without Arthur. Thanks so much for everything!
