The Way To Church

The Way To Church

The Cathedral of Christ the Savior is the main church in Moscow. This is the biggest church in Russia and symbol of our orthodox religion. It was opened in 1883, in a memory of Russian victory over Napoleon in 1812. This Cathedral had been under construction for about 40 years (1839-1883), but it was destroyed in one day, in December 5th, 1931 - during the Stalin's time (by Stalin order), because communists decided to build "Soviet Palace" for their meetings. The Cathedral was recovered during 1995 - 2000.

My trip to Moscow would not have been the same without Arthurs help. He was extremely helpful, and good fun to be with. He was the nicest person I met in Moscow! Thank you for everything. I strongly recommend Arthurs services to anyone thinking about going to Russia, he is by far the best.
