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.

My wife and I visit Moscow often and know that one of the most important things to have is a reliable driver. We discovered Arthur's service by contacting him through his Internet web site. We found him, as a driver, to be extremely reliable, professional, always on time, honest and with safe and effective driving skills. As a person, we found him to be pleasant, friendly and helpful. Arthur has a good working knowledge of the English language, and can communicate very well. He also is very familiar with the city of Moscow and its surroundings, which is very important, as there are certain areas in the city and certain times of the day which are susceptible to terrible traffic jams. I highly recommend Arthur to anybody who visits Moscow and is in need of reliable and safe transportation. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions about Arthur or his services.

Sincerely yours,
