View on the Kremlin Towers

View on the Kremlin Towers

Here is a view on the towers and famous Cathedral of Christ the Savoir from the Kremlin. I took this photo in autumn 2005 nearby the Grand Kremlin Palace, several steps from the Annunciation Cathedral.

You can see here that the Kremlin, as stronghold of Moscow city, is located on a hill (named Borovitsky) and on the bank of Moskva-Reka (Moscow-River) following all rules from medieval times about good locations for fortresses. So, here you can see how city looks nowadays not so far from the Cathedral's Square where Moscow was founded at 1147.

I like this view and composition...If you glance on it more thoughtfully, it is not doubt, that you can find 3 (three) symbols from different epochs here: star, cross and.. symbol of Mercedes.. :). By the way, the symbol of Mercedes is placed on the roof of a very famous building "House on Embankment", which is also well-known from the novel "Master and Margarita" by Bulgakov...

My wife and I as well as two of my friends just visited Moscow for 2 days. Arthur is truly a great guide to have on your trip to Moscow. He is a very friendly and fun guy that will have you remember your trip that much more. Arthur is also very generous and helpful, as on many occasions he got us through situations we would have no idea how to get through. He shows you his city which he is very proud of, and should be, I have been to 30 countries myself, and would easily choose Russia as the one with the most spectacular and beautiful things to see. May I recommend going along on the night tour of Moscow, it is a spectacular look at the sights under moonlight (and artificial light). Perhaps mention the route we took: St.Basil's, The Kremlin, Lenin's Tomb, night tour, Novodsky Convent during Day 2... Arthur doesn't let you feel out of place in Moscow, he truly is a friend in a far away place. He lets you go where you want to go. He is very informative, and just very fun to hang out with. I wish him only the best in his endeavors, and if I ever visit Russia again, we will definetly call our friend Arthur again!!! Thanks for everything man, we'll keep in touch ;)
