Trinity Chruch in Kchoroshevo

Trinity Chruch in Kchoroshevo

The Trinity Church was built in the patrimony of Boris Godunov, presented to him after the victory over the khan Kazy-Gyrey. The precise date is unknown, but according to analysis of historical facts by Andrew Batalov (architect, doctor of art history) the most probable date is 1596-98.

The Trinity Church in Kchoroshevo is small and elegant. Its high building is crowned by the hillock consisted of four rows of vertical kokoshnics*. The cupola (dome) drum has 8 windows, framed with blind arcade.Special construction of the vault gives the opportunity to heighten the arch of the main church and makes "the hillock of kokoshnicks" look more vertical. The vault is separated from the walls of the church building with the help of cornice. The plastics of the facades represent certain decorative elements of the Kremlin Archangel Cathedral. Evidently it was connected with its role of Moscow royal necropolis.

Info:
*Kokoshnik - a purely decorative architectural feature. Semi-circular in shape, often rising to a point (like the mediaeval Russian head-dress of the same name worn by married women) and framed by rich moulding. They are often found in diminishing tiers at the base of tent-shaped roofs and dome drums.

Arthur was an absolutely amazing host. So kind, gentle, thoughtful, reliable and professional.

I traveled to Moscow to watch my daughter compete at the IAAF World Championships after suffering a severe leg injury.

Since I was in a wheelchair and unable to navigate the public transit in Moscow, it was so reassuring to know that there was someone available to drive me around the city.

Not only was Arthur a safe and reliable driver, he was also an excellent tour guide and translator. He found creative ways to get me into places that would normally be difficult for the disabled.

I felt like I had a great friend looking out for me during my entire trip.

I even encouraged Arthur to promote his services to the disabled because he provides such great care to his clients.

Needless to say, I would recommend Arthur without hesitation.
