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...

I was seconded to Moscow for two years by my firm so my husband and I moved here 6 months ago. Arthur took us on a night tour of Moscow last week and although we have already been here for a while and visited some places, we felt like we saw Moscow for the first time! Arthur took us around and showed us so many different beautiful places we hadn't seen before! The tour was absolutely fantastic, Arthur is friendly and knowledgeable and was able to tell us a lot of interesting things about each place we visited. My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend Arthur's services to anyone already in Moscow or planning to visit this beautiful city!

Thanks Arthur, hope to see you again soon!
