Church from epoch of Peter I

Church from epoch of Peter I

The church of the Blessed Virgin's Birth in Podmoklovo is one of the most interesting erections of Peter's epoch that is the incarnation of west-European baroque features. A brick church delivered on the high bank of Oka represents a bivaulted rotunda covered by a high dome and accomplished by a light drum. Massive cylindrical volume of the church is surrounded by an opened arcade, connected with it by a system of groined vaults. The figures of 12 apostles and 4 evangelists are set on the axes of the arcade's pylons over the cornice on the high pedestals of the crowning balustrade. church is one of the earliest ones that came out till now from the whole first half of XVIII century rotundas. The author of the project is unknown, but he is the Italian architect Carlo Fontano by some suppositions.

I am currently working with my repeat client from Canada, Annie Budz, who came to Moscow on her vacation again, now with her sister younger Irina to discover more interesting sites in Moscow and its Region during two weeks (10-23 of May). Because of very bad traffic during workdays we as usual go out of the city from Monday to Friday and spend weekends in Moscow city. Annie likes very much Russian church architecture and we are taking a lot of pictures everyday...



Today is my Birthday, May 14th, and I decided due to this event to share one of the Best pictures of this Day on my website (see my news).

This was my second time using Arthur's services - this time with a group of 7 people, and I found him every bit as impressive the second time around. He is one of those people that was simply born to do this job, and has all the necessary skills. He's thoughtful and accommodating, very knowledgeable, passionate about his city, and just great fun to be around. A great bonus is his photography skills and the fact that he willingly shares all his photos of your trip with you at no extra charge. You can easily hire many guides that would be adequate, but if you want something extra-special for your trip, then Arthur is your guy!
