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...

One of the reason we could cover so much in Moscow in 3 days was Arthur and his well maintained Car.

Night tour was a must do as you see the places that look much more exciting at night !! Arthur was very knowledgeable and hence quick to show us many places.
Next day was Kremlin Cathedrals, Armoury and Diamond Fund. Arthur showed us all the important things there and explained in detail. He also managed to show us Diamond Fund which was a little difficult as tickets could not be pre-booked.

Metro tour was also nice and Arthur showed us all important stations and then he dropped us to the Cosmonautics Museum as agreed. All thanks to Arthur for making our Moscow trip wonderful.
