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.

While using Arthur's service's on a recent visit to Moscow, I would recommed him highly. His command of English is impecable as well as his knowledge of Moscow and Russian history. He was never late for an appointment and was very willing to take us to wherever we wanted without hesitation. We lost our plane tickets from Moscow to Stockholm and he was instrumental in help us with the ticket agent to resolve the situation. Without his acting as an interpreter we would have had a great deal of difficulty. I would not hesitate to put all my trust in Arthur and I am certaily looking forward to meeting him again in my travels. Lou
