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 was an absolutely amazing host. So kind, gentle, thoughtful, reliable and professional.

I traveled to Moscow to watch my daughter compete at the IAAF World Championships after suffering a severe leg injury.

Since I was in a wheelchair and unable to navigate the public transit in Moscow, it was so reassuring to know that there was someone available to drive me around the city.

Not only was Arthur a safe and reliable driver, he was also an excellent tour guide and translator. He found creative ways to get me into places that would normally be difficult for the disabled.

I felt like I had a great friend looking out for me during my entire trip.

I even encouraged Arthur to promote his services to the disabled because he provides such great care to his clients.

Needless to say, I would recommend Arthur without hesitation.
