Night view of Patriarch Bridge

Night view of Patriarch Bridge

I've posted already a lot of interesting pictures of the cathedral of Christ the Savoir, but this time I decided to take a little bit different angle to show you more details of decorations of patriarch bridge. This picture I took without a tripod, from my hands, of course, it was not easy to take the sharp picture, but after several attempts I had the success. From the fence of this bridge I took another nice picture "Night view of Moscow Kremlin", which I recently added into my photo album "Moscow at Night".

Short history of this famous cathedral:

The Cathedral of Christ the Savior is a great monument to Russian military glory and superb example of Russian architecture. It was opened in 1883, in a memory of Russian victory over Napoleon in 1812. This Cathedral had been under construction for about 40 years (1839-1883), but it was destroyed in one day, in December 5th, 1931 - during the Stalin's time, because communists decided to build "Soviet Palace" for their meetings. The Cathedral was recovered during 1995 - 2000. The pedestrian bridge, called Patriarch Bridge, was added in 2004 to finish architectural ensemble surrounding this cathedral.

PS: Happy New 2008 Year!
