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.

I was lucky enough to book an 8 hours night Moscow tour with Arthur while having a window between two flights.
Arthur has been such a great guide from the very beginning till the end and made this night tour one of the best things I have ever done.
From picking me up and dropping me back at the airport to showing me the city, helping me better understand its history and, nevertheless, being my personal professional photographer, Arthur is one of the best guides I have ever met. He really puts passion in what he does and offered me an unforgettable experience and around 300 excellent photos to remember it.
I recommend Arthur's services from the bottom of my heart.
Thank you!!!
