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.

My husband and I used Arthur's professional services on our first-ever trip to Moscow; during our adoption process. He took us to all the popular tourist destinations...The Kremlin, Red Square, St. Basil's Cathedral, GUM and along Old Arabat Street for good bargain shopping. On the way to the airport, we treated him at his favorite Russian pub. We got to try new Russian foods which were all fantastic! He is very knowledgeable about his city and explains the history to his clients with confidence and pride. If it wouldn't have been for Arthur we would not have seen Moscow the way we did! During our second trip to finalize the adoption of our baby boy we did not have the extra time for sightseeing and besides, Arthur was already booked with other clients so we did not get to see him. We were saddened, because we truly felt we'd met a friend! But living up to his expectations, Arthur called our hotel room "just to say hello and best wishes to our new family". What a fantastic guy! One thing that stands out about Arthur is his professionalism and the way he carries himself with confidence, and he is by far the best English-speaking Russian we met! We highly recommend Arthur's services with the guarantee of a memorable experience. One day, we hope to cross paths with Arthur again!! The McPike Family.
