Night view of Moscow Kremlin

Night view of Moscow Kremlin

Here is one more picture for my photo album "Moscow at night", which I took recently right before Catholic Christmas with one of my client from Texas, USA, and I have another title to this picture "Heart of Orthodoxy before Catholic Christmas" :-). Moscow is very festive during current winter holidays, a lot of garlands, illumination and Christmas decorations. If I will have a chance to make a picture of our Christmas trees during this holidays I will definitely show you the best one because of all my recent clients told me that they are different and very attractive with colorful illumination.

The Kremlin of Moscow is stronghold of the city; it is historical center and heart of Russia. Till end of 15th century most of the city had been inside the Kremlin walls, but from the reign of famous grand duke of Moscow Ivan III "The Great" (grandfather of first Russian tsar Ivan IV "The Terrible") the Kremlin became the official Tsars residence with just several most powerful nobles and a head of the Orthodox church, who lived inside. Italian architects built the present Kremlin fortifications at the end of the 15th century. Moscow Kremlin fortress was one of the most fortified in Europe, even more than the ones in Milan and Krakow.

This picture I took using a telephoto lenses and a fence of Patriarch bridge (which leads to cathedral of Christ the Savior)instead of tripod :-)

What a good decision it was to hire Arthur as our guide for our extra day in Moscow after our Viking River Cruise. He was on ship promptly at the agreed upon time to meet us and load our luggage in his new car. He first took us to our hotel, and then because we were early and the room was not ready, he graciously offered to bring us back after lunch to help us check-in and then continue the tour. We choose three sights that we did not see on the cruise. Arthur knows his way around, drove safely, and escorted us inside each location. His knowledge in guiding us through was invaluable and he made sure we saw the most important items or features. We also went to a delightful resturant where the locals go to eat, which was reasonable and good. Besides being knowledgeable in his history, Arthur speaks very good English. When we finished the last tour he added some bonus areas he wanted us to see and refused to charge more than the agreed upon price. What an honest, dependable, humorus, intelligent, and super friendly gentleman. We would highly recommend him as a guide and driver to anyone going to the Moscow area. We enjoyed him so much that instead of having the hotel get us to the airport, we hired Arthur the next morning to take us. Again, he was ready and waiting, and got us to the airport almost on the dot as to what he told us it would take. He would not leave us until he was sure we understood where to go and then answered any final questions we had. Thanks Arthur for helping to make our trip to Russia so very special!!
