Church of St. Sergius

Church of St. Sergius

The church of St. Sergius of Radonezh was built in 1690-1702 inside Vysoko-Petrovskiy Monastery by order of Peter I (Peter the Great) to replace the remaining wooden buildings.

The Vysoko-Petrovskiy Monastery was founded in the 14th Century go Metropolitan Peter, Archibishop of Kiev and All Russia. The original monastery was dedicated to the Apostles Peter and Paul, but later, when Metropolitan Peter had been added to the company of the saints in 1327 (or 1329) its name was changed to the Petrovski Monastery. The monastery has been rebuilt many times since its inception. Until the beginning of the 16th Century all of the buildings were made of wood.

The Vysoko-Petrovskiy Monastery is an excellent example of Baroque architecture in Moscow located not far from Bolshoi Theater on Petrovka street. This monastery was constructed towards the end of the 17th century by the Naryshkin family, relatives of Peter the Great. The style of architecture we call by their name - "Naryshkin Baroque".

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.
