Still blazing of Glory

Still blazing of Glory

The glorious white stone Transfiguration Church was built in the second half of the 16th century as a part of royal estate by order of Ivan the Terrible in commemoration a withdrawal of armies of khan Muhamed-Gireja.

Tent-roof churches began to be seen at the end of the 15th century and were widespread in the 16th and 17th centuries, but construction of tent-like churches (of which Saint Basil's Cathedral is a prime example) was strictly forbidden by Patriarch Nikon, who was famous with his reforms in Russian Orthodox Church in the middle of 17th century, in an attempt to bring the Rus church closer to the Byzantine models. It was Patriarch Nikon, who built the famous New Jerusalem in Istra.

Time has flown since we got back from our trip and we apologize for taking so long to write.
We had a wonderful time in Moscow and you were part of the reason. Moscow is a
beautiful city and you showed us many great places that we would not have seen on our
own. You were also a lot of fun to be with and we thoroughly enjoyed spending time with you.
You were always on time, if not early, and because of that we depended on you and you never let us down. We will definitely recommend your services to anyone.
