Walls & Towers of Novodevichy

Walls & Towers of Novodevichy

This picture I took on the last morning of 2006... the weather was cool (-5 C) and a little bit snow which fell couple of days before... so Moscovites met the New 2007 Year with snow, with the winter weather which has to be here during this season.. but now, two days later, because of incredible thaw which still affect on the avarage tempretures here, the tempreture in Moscow became above zero and this snow already melted... It is pity that people who like to skate and skii, can't not enjoy their hobbies during this winter holidays...

Lying by a river bend on the south-western edge of old Moscow, Novodevichy is one of the city's loveliest monasteries and major spiritual centers from centuries back. The red and white crenellated walls and golden domes of Novodevichy Convent make it one of Moscow's most attractive monasteries. Novodevichy, or "New Maidens Convent" in English, was founded by Vasily III in 1524 to commemorate the recapture of Smolensk from the Lithuanians in 1514. The convent is rather like a miniature Kremlin, built as a fortress in the bend of the Moskva River, became an important component of the capital's southern defense belt which consisted of several monasteries and cloisters.

I'm so glad we found Arthur online. He was extremely professional, cordial and such a pleasure to be around. Arthur picked us up at the airport and drove us to the hotel. We spent the entire next day together sightseeing and learning not only about the city but also about Russian history. On the following day, we did the night tour, which was amazingly beautiful, I highly recommend it. Arthur was always on time and never rushed us from one sight to another. His car, a new Honda CRV, is very comfortable and clean. For non-smokers, this is the car for you as I didn't detect a trace of cigarette smell.
During our tours, he also took some amazing pictures, some of which were so beautiful that could be used as postcards.
I will definitely recommend Arthur to all my friends and family and will contact him again anytime I come back to Moscow.
Thank you Arthur for an amazing time in Moscow.
