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.

Arthur was great. His knowledge of Moscow is deep and his ability to get the information across is done with real passion and excitement. He really loves and is proud of his city and very knowledgeable of the history of the country. Everything was organized perfectly and efficiently. What I really liked is his very happy disposition and his flexibility with plans and his ability to gauge when it is too much. He was really outstanding and I highly recommend him - oh and really good English!
