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...

I found Arthur's website completely by chance, but I am so glad that I did. I was traveling with my Mom who is in her 70's, and part of the time with my newly adopted 15 month old daughter. Arthur was very caring and considerate of all of us. I needed some medicine for my daughter and he went out of his way to find it. He planned the sightseeing so my Mom wouldn't be out in the cold too long and he made sure she didn't slip on the snow. He arranged our time so that I was able to get to see the places I wanted to see that were outside of Moscow. He is an excellent driver and a wonderful, and very knowledgeable tour guide. He is charming and fun to be with, punctual and completely reliable. We felt like we knew him for much longer than only a few days. I would highly recommend Arthur and would love to travel with him again in the future.
