Cathedral & Moscow-River Night

Cathedral & Moscow-River Night

This picture, which I took several hours before the New 2007 Year, I would like to devote for upcoming Orthodox Christmas, which will be celebrated in Russia on 7th of January. I think, that this view on the famous Cathedral of Christ the Savior, which considered to be the symbol of Orthodox Religion, and Moskva-Reka (Moscow-River) with the beautiful lights from both sides of the cathedral and festive decorations on the bridges in Moscow city during current winter holidays, fits to this purpose.

About the cathedral in brief:
The Cathedral of Christ the Savior is a great monument to Russian military glory and superb example of Russian architecture. 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.

I highly recommend Arthur Lookyanov as a professional and reliable personal driver-guide in and around Moscow. I spent two full days with Arthur, the first in touring two towns in Russia's famous Golden Ring and the second in touring within Moscow proper. Also, he provided round trip car service between my hotel and business meetings on two other days. In all this, I found Arthur to be very friendly, knowledgeable, energetic, and totally committed to client satisfaction. He planned my itineraries very thoroughly, but was also flexible and inventive in changing "on the fly" to meet my interests. A big bonus is that Arthur is also a professional photographer and I now have literally 100s of great photos of my experiences, at no extra cost. Finally, his Honda CR-V is relatively new, well maintained, and quite comfortable. All in all, my time with Arthur was very enjoyable and educational, and I will certainly hope to engage him again should I return to Moscow. Many thanks, Arthur, and kind regards!
