Road to the Moscow Countryside

Road to the Moscow Countryside

Today I saw off my client from Canada who likes architecture, especially Russian orthodox churches. She came second time to Moscow and we spent together a great time to discover Moscow Countryside. Each day we choose different direction from the Moscow city and, honestly, I have a feeling right now, that I have seen as many interesting sites, places during last two weeks as I saw during all my life before.

Moscow region is pretty big (avg. 150 miles in diameter) and on this vast area located a lot of interesting churches built from Medieval times till to the revolution by prominent Russian architects by the orders of patriarchs (popes), tsars, famous or even just rich people. A lot of churches are still survived after revolution and for a long Soviet times during at least 70 years…. and now a days is renovated, but some is still waiting their fate in a VERY bad conditions, which were fortunately were not explored during Stalin times, but were ransack and treated outrageously.

This picture I took during shooting a very beautiful church in Ubory, which is located on west about 30 km from Moscow city in Odintsovo district…. BUT my next pictures with beautiful Russian orthodox churches which is not so popular and easy to get as like, for example, St. Basil on the Red square, but no less attractive and marvelous … will be a bit later… I hope soon :)…

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 ;)
