Blue and Golden Domes

Blue and Golden Domes

The beautiful Blue and Golden Domes of the main church, Assumption Cathedral, in the Trinity Monastery of St. Sergius looks very impressive. This Cathedral was built at the end of 16th century (1559-1585) by the order of Ivan Terrible. The church follows the forms of the Assumption Cathedral of Moscow Kremlin which was a symbol of the state power.

Nowadays the monastery (Trinity Monastery of St. Sergius ) carries the name of Lavra that translating from Greece means "main and most important monastery". There are four lavras in Russia, but the Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius (full name) is considered to be "Russian Vatican" and besides our patriarch's temporary residence is situated there.

We used Arthur for professional and business interpretation - but his abilities as a driver and as a photographer added lustre to his overall support.
Arthur really has a good command of the English language and dealt with many technical and business discussions with ease. His ability to navigate Moscow and get us to appointments on time was most impressive but it was the small things like his reliability, his obvious integrity, his good sense that made his contribution to our visit so marked. We didn't have to attempt to read Cyrillic signs for the Metro, or restaurants or streets , Arthur was completely in control of our movement through Moscow. He really was a marvel and we can't recommend him too highly. A nice man and a most professional individual.
