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.

After two other consultants I work with had a terrible time getting around Moscow, I decided to hire an English-speaking driver.

Arthur was great! He is reliable and punctual (to the minute).

His knowledge of the city and its history is very impressive. His English is excellent and he has a great sense of humor. I enjoyed my time in Moscow and hope to return in the future. My first call will be to Arthur.

Spaceebo!
