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).

Hope you like... Cheers!

We recently went to Russia looking for a little boy to add to our family. On our first trip, we were introduced to Aurthur by another couple at the tail end of our first week. Earlier in the week we struggled with everything from finding Red Square to exchanging money and even finding a decent place to eat. So on our return trip we capitalized on Aurthur. From the Moscow tours to the Open Air Market to the airport shuttle service, Aurthur was super. His knowledge, friendship and protective nature made our STRESSFUL trip a little less stressful and much more enjoyable. It was truely like having a good friend in Russia. We would highly recommend Aurthur for any chauffer or escort service. Our adoption was successful and we not only feel that we gained a son, but also a Great Friend.
