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'm so glad we found Arthur online. He was extremely professional, cordial and such a pleasure to be around. Arthur picked us up at the airport and drove us to the hotel. We spent the entire next day together sightseeing and learning not only about the city but also about Russian history. On the following day, we did the night tour, which was amazingly beautiful, I highly recommend it. Arthur was always on time and never rushed us from one sight to another. His car, a new Honda CRV, is very comfortable and clean. For non-smokers, this is the car for you as I didn't detect a trace of cigarette smell.
During our tours, he also took some amazing pictures, some of which were so beautiful that could be used as postcards.
I will definitely recommend Arthur to all my friends and family and will contact him again anytime I come back to Moscow.
Thank you Arthur for an amazing time in Moscow.
