Fire opposite Moscow Kremlin

Fire opposite Moscow Kremlin

On 17th of August 2007, when I was walking across the Bolshoi Kamenny Most (Big Stone Bridge) to meet my clients near the Armory Museum, I was able to watch a fire in one of the buildings opposite the Kremlin Cathedrals. The other side of the Moscow River, where the fire was burning, was cordoned off by police and surrounded by many fire trucks. Even one boat was called to resist and stop the fire in the old house which is currently under reconstruction.

The total area of the fire in the small 3 floor building, which is located at Sofiiskaya Embankment, 8, came to more than 250 square meters. The fire destroyed completely all wooden construction on two upper floors of the old building. Seven fire brigades and one boat were involved in the operation to stop the fire.

Now officials from fire prevention inspection are determining the cause of the fire and investigating the company which was reconstructing the house.

My mum and I went on a night tour of Moscow with Arthur. At first we were a bit apprehensive as there were no reviews on Tripadvisor, but we are so glad we booked with Arthur as this turned out to be our FAVOURITE tour in Moscow.

Arthur was very knowledgeable about the city and it's history, and is also a fantastic photographer!

We only wished we had booked Arthur for our tour of the Kremlin the following day, as he knew much more about the Kremlin than even our Kremlin guide.

We both enjoyed the night tour very much and would highly recommend Arthur!!
