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.

In June of 2010, my friends and I had a long layover in Moscow. We were hoping for a brief one day introduction to Moscow, yet Arthur gave us so much more. He was not only a comfortable guide, but incredibly knowledgeable. His knowledge of Russian and world history is incredible. As a history teacher, I was especially impressed with his attention to historic detail. One thing I appreciated was his efficiency considering our time constraints. We viewed the sights at our own pace, yet he seemed to know every trick when it came to getting in and out of a location and moving on to the next. Another aspect of his services that impressed me was his ability to speak excellent English. If we had a question, he had the answer, and there was never a conversation that was lost in translation. Without reservation, I highly recommend Arthur and his guide services. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! Please feel free to contact me with any questions, or concerns you may have.
