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 learned about Arthurs services in an unfortunate way. After reading a few stories about how Arthur was involved with a young boy who was sent back to Russia from America alone on a plane we decided to use his services while we were in Moscow. My young son and I are sponsors of SOS Children’s Village and during or down time from visiting the SOS Children’s Village in Tomilino we decided to book Arthur services to take my mother for a tour of Moscow. Little did Arthur know we had some sort of connection, because my son and I just happen to be the sponsor to the same child. Arthur knew we were visiting the children’s village but I would always use the child’s birth name because he is no long recognized by his former name and I believe Arthur never connected. I showed Arthur a picture of my son and the boy and referred to the boy by his real name and then informed Arthur who this child was by his former adopted name. Arthur seemed very pleased and happy to see the boys smiling face and to hear that he is doing just fine and wonderful. The service he provided my family was wonderful and the way he treated my 8 year old son was just fantastic! It was a pleasure and honor to meet this man. I will highly recommend my new friends service to anyone traveling to Moscow for wonderful experience!
