Porch of Tsarina's Chambers

Porch of Tsarina's Chambers

In the middle of 17th sentury on the grounds of Savvino-Storozhevsky monastery two palaces for the Royal family had been built during reconstraction, the famous craftsmen was invited and a lot of money from treasury were spent. The Tsar Palace was built for the Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich (father of Peter the Great), who liked to stay in the Monastery, and the building of Tsarina's Chambers was erected for his first wife, Tsarina Maria Inynichna Miloslavsskaya. On this picture you can see the festive Tsarina's Chambers from the side of the main entrance with the impressive porch.

Nowadays, the Tsarina's Chambers houses a historical museum with various exhibits showing us rare collections of medieval handicraft and art in the gala halls with multicolored portals and tile stoves. One of this exhibits, for example, called "The 17th century Boyarinya and Dining Chambers", shows the atmosphere of Old Russia we know from fairy-tales. The reconstructed interiors demonstrate ornamental embroideries, expensive Russian and foreign textiles, various samples of Moscow jewelry art (buttons, ear-rings), books, chests - objects surrounding a Russian woman at that time.

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.
