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.

Arthur gave me one of my nicest days as a tourist. Kind, intelligent, funny, professional, with very personal approach to his guests (you don't feel as a client with him).

He loves his country and loves Moscow. I learned a lot about the culture and the history of Russia.

It was pleasant, sunny February day and I fully enjoyed my stay. Now if I remember Moscow, I will always remember Arthur.

The services of Arthur are the best solution if you need any support during your stay in Moscow. Thank you, Arthur, I hope we meet again.
