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 spent two glorious months in Moscow this Fall and had it not been for Arthur my stay would not have been have as nice. He was professional, very knowledgable, friendly, a great, dependable driver and so pleasant to be with; I could not have wished for a better guide! I got to see much of the Moscow Oblast areas I wanted to see and with Arthur's guidance nothing was missed, he tied everything together expertly. Even the Moscow traffic was not so bad, Arthur new how to get the best of a bad traffic situation. His new jeep was warm and comfortable, his driving dependable, his knowledgable and friendly disposition a gift no doubt; and no matter how much you may have studied and think you know the place Arthur will surprise you. But most of all, he is a warm, genuine RUSSIAN. For most of us who are drawn to Russia, it is mainly a spiritual journey!
Thanks Arthur!
