The Old Style Medieval Belfry

The Old Style Medieval Belfry

On my previous picture I showed you the old Transfiguration church (which located on the background here) and told in my notes that it was not possible for me to take a good shot of the church and bell-tower together. Here you can see this bell tower, actually more correctly to call it "medieval belfry", by its style, and the original name for it on Russian language is "Zvonnitsa".

Preparing a new picture about the tour to Zvenigorod city, I thought that it could be very interesting for you to see this photo, because of only a few medieval belfries are still extant in Russia. Also, in spite of the fact that the buildings appear with perspective distortion here, I think, that in this composition the old style bell-tower looks pretty interesting and impressive.

As like the Transfiguration church, the "Zvonnitsa" is divided into three vertical sections with two horizontal tires in which there are three arched openings for the bells. In 1993 after a lapse of 60 years, bells once more hung in their proper place.

My wife and I as well as two of my friends just visited Moscow for 2 days. Arthur is truly a great guide to have on your trip to Moscow. He is a very friendly and fun guy that will have you remember your trip that much more. Arthur is also very generous and helpful, as on many occasions he got us through situations we would have no idea how to get through. He shows you his city which he is very proud of, and should be, I have been to 30 countries myself, and would easily choose Russia as the one with the most spectacular and beautiful things to see. May I recommend going along on the night tour of Moscow, it is a spectacular look at the sights under moonlight (and artificial light). Perhaps mention the route we took: St.Basil's, The Kremlin, Lenin's Tomb, night tour, Novodsky Convent during Day 2... Arthur doesn't let you feel out of place in Moscow, he truly is a friend in a far away place. He lets you go where you want to go. He is very informative, and just very fun to hang out with. I wish him only the best in his endeavors, and if I ever visit Russia again, we will definetly call our friend Arthur again!!! Thanks for everything man, we'll keep in touch ;)
