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.

To all of you travelling to Moscow, surfing on Arthur's page debating on whether or not to hire his sevices, my only advice is DO IT! He will show you Moscow under a totally different angle.Not only will you get an in depth run down of what you are seeing,( as Arthur is very knowledgeable) but most of all you will have a fantastic human experience. being a tourist can sometimes get pretty lonely, (nose always burried in guide books, trying to desperately find your way in this maze of a city where the alphabet is not even the same).... But not with Arthur. With him you just have to sit back and enjoy. He will tailor the tour to your needs, sharing every single thing he knows about everything and anything.You will experience warmth, humour and true generosity on top of visiting a beautiful city.
I am recommending him a thousand times, as he will make your trip to Moscow an unforgettable priceless memory.
thank you arthur. You a truly a great man!
