Savinskaya embankment

Savinskaya embankment

This photo I took from a new pedestrian bridge, which was built over Moscow-River in 2002, from the side of Raddison Slavyanskaya Hotel and Kievsky Railway Station. This is view on the Savinskaya embankment, not so far from downtown of the city. You can see here intersting big curved apartment building with a green sign "Borodino". This building was built in Stalin times (all buildings which were built in the middle of 20th century, when Stalin was the leader of USSR, we call "Stalin's buildings", which is very expencive to rent or buy now a days). The name of this building "Borodino" - is the name of the field where was very important battle between French and Russian troops during the war with Napoleon 1812.

In the middle of this photo (background) you can also watch the tower of one of famous Seven Sisters, built by Stalin order at 1951 - This is the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia.

All these buildings look very impressive and there are good examples of "Stalin Gothic" architecture, but all of them were built using slave labor of people.

My family and I used Artur as a guide for our five days visit to Moscow. The first thing I have to say is the fact that Artur has been extremely reliable, coming on time and organizing our trip not only what we asked him to do but adding some special area that were very worth it. We investigated several guide company and found that Artur was very reasonable pricewise and did not requested to be paid everything before the trip started. His knowledge of Moscow was very deep and he introduced us to several places and restaurants that we all enjoyed. We also appreciate his art in making photographs as he is a real expert in it and I hope he will use some of the photographs he took of our family in his photo display. If anyone would like to check anything about Artur please e-mail us and we will be ready to tell everyone how good he treated us.
