The Kremlin Embankment

The Kremlin Embankment

I think, that here is pretty interesting view on the Kremlin Embankment from Bolshoi Moskvoretsky Most (Eng: Big Moscow-River Bridge) with panorama of the downtown of Moscow city, the heart of Russia. This picture, lets me give it the full name "Moscow Winter Cityscape with a view on the Kremlin Embankment", I took recently, when the temperature was pretty low, about -15..-17 C, and my fingers almost frozen holding my camera.

The traffic here, of course, is bad as usual. Nowadays, each day dozens of thousands of cars moving around the beautiful Kremlin walls and towers, erected by Russian and Italian architects at the end of 15 century. The Moscow Kremlin has about 20 small and big towers and the length of it's walls is about 2.2 km. As stronghold of the city and one of the most fortified fortresses in Europe, all Moscow Kremlin walls were surrounded by the moats and rivers till beginning of 19th century.

On this picture you can see a part of the city from left side of Moskva-Reka (Moscow-River) well-known from Medieval times as "Zamoskvorechje" ( Eng: The over side of Moskva-Reka); Cathedral of Christ the Savoir, which was built at the end of 19th century and became the symbol of Orthodox Religion, it is considered to be the biggest cathedral in Russia; steam from one heating plant in downtown; Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia - one of the famous Stalin's skyscrapers (Seven Sisters).

PS: Some of the wires from lampposts on foreground of this picture I decided to remove for better view.

Fearing to lack assistance in such so great city, I was so close to suspend my business travel to Russia, if by chance by easy search in the Net I got Mr. Arthur contact.
I avow this it was my best choice to book a guide and I feel lucky to get so serious, professional guide.

Mr. Arthur has escorted me in all my moves in Moscow, and he was there to serve as translator in Hotels, in the markets, for the money exchange..
I was in Moscow for a fair but wanting to join the pleasant to the useful, I had Mr. Arthur who made me visit to the main monuments of Moscow.

So knowledgeable, so precise about Moscow history, so passionate, proud about his city, I have discovered a wonderful city, full of glory.

Mr. Arthur has cared to finish all the itinerary and icing on the cake, fantastic photos all along the visit.

A high quality service from a professional guide.
