Kremlin in Izmailovo Near Pond

Kremlin in Izmailovo Near Pond

Here is the view on the beautiful architectural ensemble of the Kremlin in Izmailovo from the small pedestrian bridge on the way to Izmailovsky Ostrov (Izmailov's Iceland). The walls and towers of the Kremlin were built in 1990s in the style of Medieval Russian wooden fortress and nowadays it houses the well-known and very popular craft flea market, called Vernisazh (or Art City, Craft Market), where you can buy all kinds of Russian souvenirs, as like matreshkas, shaulves, samovars, carved chess and Ded Moroz'es (Santas), gzhel and many other famous souvenirs from Russia at reasonable prices if compare with shops in downtown of Moscow city.
The weather in Moscow this winter is stil very warm, (now snow in middle of January, just incredible!) but very cloudy, just several days were sunny during the last couple of months... Of course, this weather is quite depressing, but I think that this colorful ancient style towers can change your mood in positive way with any weather conditions This is like kids start to smile after looking on Disney Land... and that is why, having pretty hard climate conditions with short summers and long winters, Russians like colorful & decorative buildings!

As you can read in the comments on either side of this testimonial, Arthur's many clients have been so satisfied and enthusiastic about his services that they seem to compete to articulate the best and most impressive recommendation of his services. We will not be an exception. Arthur was outstanding as a tour guide, driver, photographer, and translator. We saw the most important sites in Moscow and outside of Moscow. One of the highlights of our trip was Moscow by night which was an incredible introduction to this beautiful city. With Arthur’s help, we saw sites that are rarely available for viewing such as the Kremlin Palace. In addition, Arthur also showed us sites that are rarely visited such as the Gorky House, Tolstoi House, Chaliapin House and Scriabin House, which gave us an insight into how famous Russian writers, opera singers, and composers lived. All of these visits made our tour of Moscow richer and more insightful. Arthur seems to know every street in one of the largest cities in the world, and every shortcut to avoid the many traffic jams in Moscow. With his knowledge of Moscow and a genuine desire to satisfy his clients’ wishes, Arthur assured that we made the most of our time in this exciting city. As an avid photographer, he documented our entire visit to Moscow with photos that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. And finally, Arthur’s extensive knowledge of art, architecture, history, and religion enhances each tour. We strongly encourage anyone interested in an in-depth tour of Moscow to consider Arthur because he will exceed your expectations.
