Patriarchy Most & Cathedral

Patriarchy Most & Cathedral

The old style pedestrian bridge, called Patriarchy Most (Eng: Patriarch's Bridge), was built at the end of summer 2004 and presently spans the Moscow River between the Cathedral of Christ the Savior and Bersenevskaya Naberezhnaya. The bridge is geometrically tied to the Christ the Savior's Cathedral ensemble. Russian Academy of Arts Professional Artistic Centre of Zurab Tsereteli provided artistic decoration of the bridge. Very impressive illumination, architecture and location of this bridge attracts a lot of tourists as at day as at night.

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. It is considered that the Cathedral of Christ the Savior is the biggest church in Russia and it is the symbol of Orthodox Religion.

I was in Moscow for two weeks on business. During this time I employed Arthur on a daily basis to take me to my numerous meetings around the city during the day as well as in the evening when I visited restaurants and bars. His knowledge of the city is excellent and he was able to find every address on time. He was always punctual and I found him pleasant and honest.

Using Arthur is much cheaper than using regular Moscow taxis which are very expensive and unreliable - on my previous trips to Moscow I used regular taxis and when I compared my expenses I found that using Arthur on a daily rate worked out cheaper than taking taxis. He is also a fun companion if you are travelling on your own. Highly recommended
