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!

To my Guide Arthur

Throughout the last seven years I have spent a lot of time traveling to different parts of the world, exploring whenever and wherever I can in order to better appreciate the world around us. Several months ago I decided it was time to visit Russia and Moscow was one city that I have wanted to visit since I was in grade school, so the pressure to see and experience the Russian capital was on. After a series of random internet searches I found a guide that had good reviews and so I decided to send an email whereupon several days later Arthur Lookyanov replied with a detailed itinerary of sights to see and a very organized cost sheet that made everything concise and easy to understand. My tour to Moscow began in the early June, 2012 and was the last leg of a mini European tour that included Berlin, St. Petersburg, Chernobyl, Kiev and after a long delay navigating through customs I met Arthur at a Snack Time café area. Right from the start Arthur was on time, waited for my delayed entry and navigated the airport like it was his second home.
Throughout all of my three tours, Arthur was always on time, organized what we saw from beginning to end, allowed enough time to take as many pictures as one wanted with a break for lunch and made adjustments to the itinerary when it rained or crowds got in the way of our tour. When you sign for one of Arthur’s tours, you can rest assured he will not be sitting in his car texting while you navigate the Russian subway system because he will be there with you every step of the way regardless of weather, circumstance or Kremlin security. What is also a real bonus throughout his tours, it that Arthur brings along his very professional camera whereby taking pictures from his perspective therefore you get a second camera snapping shots to further enhance your Moscow experience. His energy to show the beauty of Moscow is immediately apparent because his knowledge about Russian history is overwhelming even for a professional historian and Arthur’s drive to make sure you get the best tour possible is without question what sets him apart from other tour operators. It is without reservation or doubt that when I return to Moscow Arthur Lookyanov will be my personal guide and photographer.
