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.

We are jsut back from Russia with our new adopted son Denis. We heard about Arthur before we travelled so we booked him for Airport transfers and some shopping & sightseeing. He was FANTASTIC! We had another few friends who wanted to also use his services so Arthur brought along another driver Dima to accommodate us! Besides being way cheaper that the hotel transportation or regular taxis he offers a super service. He's interesting, friendly and nothing is too much to ask him to do. He took me shopping with a friend and helped pick out baby formuala and other essential food items. He then packed groceries & carried them to the car - what more could you ask for!! A truly Moscow Star!
