Cathedral & Moscow-River

Cathedral & Moscow-River

During the last two weeks Muscovites are very surprised to witness such warm temperatures at the end of November - beginning of December with average temperatures during a day about 4-5 degrees above zero Centigrade. Of course, the snow, which fell in the middle of November was melted very fast and the weather in Moscow became to be like in Europe, a lot of people talking that we are living now as like in London, mostly cloudy, no sun, a lot of rains and from time to time fog, even several days ago after a small rain I have seen a rainbow nearby my house - it was really impressive to see at this time of winter season!!!

Talking about the current weather in Moscow, I would like to show you the picture with a view on the famous cathedral in Moscow - the Cathedral of Christ The Savior, which I took recently with my clients from US (David and James - camera crew of Johnny Weir), right from embankment of Moscow-River, the opposite side from the Moscow Kremlin.

The Cathedral of Christ the Savior is the main church in Moscow. It was opened in 1883, in a memory of Russian victory over Napoleon in 1812. This Cathedral had been under construction for about 40 years (1839-1883), but it was destroyed in one day, in December 5th, 1931 - during the Stalin's time, because communists decided to build "Soviet Palace" for their meetings. The Cathedral was recovered during 1995 - 2000.

Arthur, our knowledgeable tour guide was amazing and he always keen to accommodate our various requests in this trip. We couldn't have discovered so much in Moscow and the whitish snowy fairytale countryside without his great input!

During our trip planning, he responded quickly to all of our questions. He even arranged local guided tours in different special museums which we yearned to visit. He translated well and we learned a lot from those field experts.

We saw the city and rural at night with marvellous Christmas lights and snowy scenery. He showed us things we would never have explored on our own. He knows exactly where are the good sights. He showed us the beauty and history of Metro stations, awesome landscapes and architecture around. All these have given us the best experience and a pleasurable time in Moscow.

He made us feel like friends instead of just tourists and tour guide. If you're looking for a guide in Moscow, Arthur should be the first on your list! Through his passion, you will be able to know more about the region as well as much about the Russian culture in a unique and very authentic way. This is really an invaluable memory for travellers to Moscow.

Two thumbs up for Arthur, he is superb and we have no hesitation in recommending his services for those who would like to see and experience the real Russia.
