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.

I visited Moscow with my parents in early April 2012 and we hired Arthur to show us around the city for about 2.5 days. We were all very pleased with his services as his English is excellent, he is reliable and he knows the city in and out. He not only knows all the major attractions that most first-time tourists want to visit, but also helped us customize the tour to some of our own interests - including guiding us to Jewish sites of interest, and also a fascinating site for exploring Russian military aviation history! On top of this, Arthur's photographs are professional quality - the photos he took of us at St. Basil Cathedral and of various viewpoints on our evening tour are particularly special. In fact they are the nicest photos I have from any trip in recent memory! Many thanks again from my parents and me!!
