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.

Hi Arthur, we made it safely to Riga and we are now just on the ferry to Stockholm. Riga is beautiful. With my blackberry I have email so it's great.

I wanted to thank you for such a wonderful trip to Moscow. What an incredible experience. I could not imagine Moscow without you! It was so much more fulfilling. Russian has always fascinated. We hear about your country so much in the news that it was important for me to experience it first hand.

I think in many ways North America and Russia are alike. We have very different histories, but in many ways we live the same in these times of rapid communication, TV and the internet. It is striking that without those tools cultures evolved so differently but with them we have many similarities!

Stay in touch. If you ever come to Canada you have to visit the capital city of Ottawa and I will happily be your guide!

Thank you again,
K
