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.

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.
