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.

We landed in Moscow for one night connection and we only had a few hours in the evening to tour the city.
A Google search prior to our trip, resulted in a few guides for a night tour of Moscow, and I contacted them all by email. Arthur was the most responsive and communicative, and gave the best impression by far, so we payed the deposit by Paypal and waited for the day.
Arthur met us at the hotel at 20:00 as agreed (90 minutes after landing) and took us to a great tour of the city, explaining both what we see all the time, as well as the history of Moscow and Russia. Arthur also took nice photos of us with his professional Nikon camera, and two days later sent them to us via Dropbox.
I would recommend using Arthur's services with no hesitations! Excellent English, Good clean car, polite and knowledgable.
Next time I'll be visiting Moscow (hopefully during day-time, no doubt I'll use Arthur's services again.
