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...

Arthur is not only the best info and tour driver, HE IS MOSCOW. Knows every back street to get around traffic jams, every good restaurant and where to find a clean toilet. even got us hard to get tickets for the Bolshoi. He is the best and as a world traveler I think he is a GEM. The added gift of a CD of our trip gave us a great memory to carry home.
