Entrance into Savva monastery

Entrance into Savva monastery

Lets me to continue the tour to the beautiful town in Moscow Rigion, Zvenigorod. You have already seen interesting churches on the way to this old, famous town: the church of the Savior in Ubory, the church of Transfiguration in Bolshie Vyazemy, so now it is time to see one of the main attractions in Zvenigorod - the St. Savva Storozhevsky monastery, which was founded by the pupil of Great St. Sergius of Radonezh (who founded famous Holy-Trinity Lavra in Sergiev Posad).

The St. Savva Storozhevsky monastery has rectangular shape and situated high above the confluence of two rivers - The Moskva and Storozhki - in wooden uplands. On this picture I wanted to show you the entrance into Savva's monastery. Above the gates you can see the icon of Christ the Savior and sign on Russian "Christos Voskrese!" (Eng: Christ Risen!). When I was there with my client from Canada in May, it was about two weeks after the Russian Easter...

We (couple in mid 30's) had a long 15 hour layover in Moscow on our way to SE Asia over Christmas break. We wanted a guided that could pick us up at the airport, show us the sites, & bring us back to catch our connection. Who wants the stress of trying to figure out taxis or public transportation when you don't have a lot of time, you have luggage, & your in the middle of a long haul flight with little sleep? You just don't need that kind of stress on vacation! Arthur was the perfect choice! He met us at the airport. We loaded our luggage into his car & we were off to the city! Arthur has a deep knowledge of history and was able to give us great insight into Russian history. He is also a really good photographer which I loved since I too greatly enjoy photography. He suggested great photos & angles & was also there to take shots of Michael & I together around the city. We now have great trip photos to share with family & friends. We visited Red Square, St. Basil’s Cathedral, Lenin’s Tomb, Moscow Kremlin ground and cathedrals, Armory museum, changing of the guard, Moscow Metro stations, took panoramas of Moscow Kremlin from river and after dark photographed some night scenes of Moscow. He took us to a great Ukrainian restaurant to eat. The hearty food was sooo good on a chilly Moscow day! At the end of the day Arthur drove us back to the airport & even walked us to our gate. We really had a great day in Moscow with Arthur. Don't spend your layover in the airport. Get out & experience this amazing city with a great guide & no worries!
