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.

Visiting Moscow has been a lifelong dream, so when I was fortunate to combine this with a business trip, I didn't hesitate to book Arthur's services, based on all the wonderful recommendations of his former and repeat clients.

Arthur made my visit a dream come true. His knowledge of the city and the history of Russia is extensive, and we managed to fit in a great deal of the amazing sights around the city.

I'll certainly return to Moscow again, and I hope that Arthur will be available to make my second trip as amazing and memorable as my first!!

Thank you again for everything you did to make my first impressions of Moscow as magical as the city itself is.
