Trinity Cathedral in Winter

Trinity Cathedral in Winter

Here is the picture of the Holy Lives-giving Trinity Cathedral which was built in 2004, in honor of the 1,000 year anniversary of the Christening of Russia. I like this impressive cathedral and took already a lot of interesting pictures here, but yesterday, on the way back from airport Domodedevo, it was pretty nice sunny day, almost before sunset, and I decided to stop my car to make several shots again to show you how it looks at winter season.

In spite of it was pretty hard to move with a lot of snow which fell recently, I tried to make something different (if compare with my previous photos of this cathedral) . Of course, the conrast here is not so impressive as like in my previous picture "Blue Domes Under Grey Skies", but anyway it is looks attractive with it's impressive Byzantine style of architecture and gorgeous shining blue domes.

Some history in brief:
The year 988... was a pivotal year in Russian history, for that is when this country adopted Christianity. Prince Vladimir, the sovereign ruler of Olden Russia, was christened in the Crimean town of Hersoness, which in those times belonged to Byzantium. At his decree, all of his subjects, also adopted Christianity. Thus, in the 10th century Kievskaya Rus (Russia, Ukraina) became a country of Orthodox Christians.

For our first trip to Russia my wife and I (in our 60s) wanted the services of a reliable and informative Moscow guide for 3 days. We found Arthur on the internet and made the usual enquiries. His email responses were lightning fast, his english as good as ours and his rates competitive. We signed up with him and he fully delivered on everything that he promised. He met us at Moscow Station and we spent 3 full days sightseeing with him - 2 days in Moscow plus a one day trip to Vladimir and Suzdal, and a very memorable night lights tour of Moscow as well. Arthur is the complete guiding professional. He is extremely knowledgable of Russian history, efficient, courteous, honest, friendly (with a great sense of humour) and is also a great photographer which adds greatly to the photo memories that you want to capture. We had no knowledge of Arthur before finding him on the internet but he is easily the best guide we have ever experienced in our numerous travels abroad. We have no hesitation in recommending him.
