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.

I visited Moscow twice within some weeks, once for private reasons and once for Business.
I had Arthur both as Guide and as Driver for several needed transports, mainly from and to Airport. I also booked some tours with him, one was the “Best of Moscow” and the other one, just recently was a “Moscow by Night” Tour. Arthur has a very deep knowledge about history and culture of Moscow/Russia, but he transfers his knowledge in an easy, sometimes also funny way.
He is very precise on time (very important for me as Swiss  ) and also knows how to avoid Moscow traffic jams, which saves a lot of time.
During my stays, my relation to Arthur turned from Client to Friend. I can highly recommend to book his services, it worth every Dollar, Euro or Ruble you invest in him.
