Magnificent Dome

Magnificent Dome

Here is the dome of the main cathedral of the New Jerusalem Resurrection Monastery (Resurrection Cathedral), which was built in 1658-1685 and considered to be the one of most grandiose building of XVII century Russian architecture.

The Resurrection Cathedral, was built as a similarity of a church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. The model of the cathedral was brought to Russia by the Greek Patriarch Paisy in 1649. Paisy spent several months in Moscow. He met Tsar Alexis and Nikon, who was an abbot of Novospassky monastery. The influence of Paisy on the future Patriarch was a big one. Obviously in that time the idea of unification of the Orthodox lands under Moscow authority came to Nikon's mind.

A lifelong dream came true to visit Russia and the perfect guide came along with it. Arthur is the “Russian Guru of Drivers-Guide” for everyone looking or considering a guide please also, reference Steve Killian’s post on 2006-12-20. Steve’s post is on spot. Arthur is still on point after 8 years. Like Steve, I was solo on my visit with no worries with Arthur at the wheel. Pick up from DME several tours in 7 seven days and I was directed in the correct line for my return flight. I experienced Moscow through the eyes of a true Muscovite, who loves his city, country and wants you to experience the true Moscow. Arthur thanks for the experience of life time. During our visit to Sergius Lavra (Russia’s Vatican City) services I felt the presents of God in this historical church. Arthur thanks for sharing with me the Art, History, Religion (Churches were awesome), Cultural Centers, Markets, Culinary and photography it was all amazing. Also, visiting Russia in the winter you don’t have to deal with the crowd’s. Moscow was lit up like a Christmas Winter Wonderland. In every park there was a theme and several streets were closed to traffic for venders in the center of the city on the weekends. Arthur thanks for everything. If you are reading this post and trying to decide to use Arthur “just do it”.
