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.

From the moment I found Arthur on the Internet, he has been a real pleasure to deal with.
The booking was set up before we arrived in Moscow and he made us feel very safe and secure in a country where the language is very difficult to understand.
Arthur arrived at the hotel exactly on time and it was like meeting an old friend! He drove us into town and chatted all the way there, putting us at ease. He explained where we were going and what we could expect to see. All the extra pieces of info that you would not get from walking round, reading the descriptions of the exhibits. We went to see the changing of the guard, Lenins tomb, The Armoury, the diamond exhibition, Red Square, Gym store, The Kremlin, St Basil's and had a meal at a Ukranian restaurant. A fabulous day with a fabulous host. I would recommend Arthur's services to anyone considering a trip to Moscow. After a few hours with him, we could conquer the city on our own feeling confident with proper bearings.
Thank you Arthur, it has been FAB !!!!! Xx
