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!

I found Arthur's website completely by chance, but I am so glad that I did. I was traveling with my Mom who is in her 70's, and part of the time with my newly adopted 15 month old daughter. Arthur was very caring and considerate of all of us. I needed some medicine for my daughter and he went out of his way to find it. He planned the sightseeing so my Mom wouldn't be out in the cold too long and he made sure she didn't slip on the snow. He arranged our time so that I was able to get to see the places I wanted to see that were outside of Moscow. He is an excellent driver and a wonderful, and very knowledgeable tour guide. He is charming and fun to be with, punctual and completely reliable. We felt like we knew him for much longer than only a few days. I would highly recommend Arthur and would love to travel with him again in the future.
