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 first trip to Moscow,I hired Aurthur's services via internet and it was the best decision I could have made. Authur was able to relocate me to a more suitable hotel, after my "knowledgeable" travel agent booked me into totally inapropriate surrounds. Authur's extensive knowledge of the city and it's history made my stay even more memorable, as I was interested in seeing all the sights, not just the ones in the brochures.I was picked up from my hotel on time every time, and was not only shown the sights, but was taken to some very interesting and enjoyable restuarants and night spots, something that only some one who is local would know.More importantly, as I was travelling alone, Arthur's conversation and presence made me feel more at ease, as he was able to translate on my behalf in all manner of social and non-social interactions. I would certanly recommend that any one thinking of travelling to Moscow should contact Arthur before travelling, so he can point them in the right direction as to where to stay etc... I had such a good time that I now count Arthur as one of my friends.
