A view on The Red Gates

A view on The Red Gates

In the middle of this composition you can see the handsome Krasnye Vorota (Red Gates), which were the main entrance into the Savvino-Storozhevsky monastery before the tall and thick walls with towers were erected around it. Behind the gates, the very decorative tent-roofed church of the Holy Trinity was built in 1652 by N. Sheremetyeva. Her parents and relatives are buried in the lower chamber. On the right hand of the Red Gates, behind the trees, you can see the part of "Tsarina's Chambers". And the last building, which you can see in the middle of background, is the main watch tower with wooden roof. This tower was used as the main entrance from East side after the construction of new fortifications had been finished around monastery in 1650-1654.

We had an unforgettable visit to Moscow thanks to Arthur! He picked us up from the train station and took us to our hotel. Later he picked us up for an evening tour of the city. The next day we did a full day tour including the Kremlin and a car museum for our son. Arthur even helped us to purchase some Russian vodka to take home with us. All the photos that he took of our family throughout the tours was the icing on the cake!
