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.

We recently spent two days with our friends in Moscow and cannot say enough good things about our experience with Arthur! He is very knowledgeable about Moscow history and makes you feel so comfortable during your visit! Arthur was always on time and excited and ready to share his city. We only had 2 days in Moscow and Arthur was amazing at helping see all the great sites in a short time, without ever feeling rushed. On our last day, Arthur took us to a great restaurant where he helped us to choose traditional Russian food from the menu! Arthur was more than a guide, he was a friend and we are very grateful to have met him. Thank you for helping us make our visit to Moscow one of our most favorite experiences we've had! Keep up the good work!
