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...

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!
