Bridge over the frozen river

Bridge over the frozen river

The old style Patriarchy Bridge over the Moscow-River (Moskva-Reka) was built in August 2004 and presently spans the Moscow River between the majestic Cathedral of Christ the Savior and Bersenevskaya Naberezhnaya.

The artistic decoration of the Bridge was provided by Russian Academy of Arts Professional Artistic Centre of Zurab Tsereteli and it is geometrically tied to the famous cathedral. The nicely made illumination, beautiful old style architecture and excellent location for viewing Moscow Kremlin, monument of Peter The Great and, of course, cathedral of Christ the Savior attract a lot of tourists at day or night time.

I took this picture at one early morning at the beginning of the New Year. I had to wake up very early that morning to see off my clients to the airport (back to US) and then I decided to make photo shooting at sunrise… It is not snow for a while in Moscow, but pretty cold during the first days of the new 2008 year (those night was about –16 C). When I was out of my car to try to take good pictures my fingers and feet were almost frozen as like the Moscow-River on the picture :-), but I was awarded several great pictures and one of them you can see already now.

PS: When I saw this ice I had a thought that it could be nice to skate there :-).

This was my first trip to Moscow,I hired Aurthur's services via internet and it was the best decision I could have made. Authur was able to relocate me to a more suitable hotel, after my "knowledgeable" travel agent booked me into totally inapropriate surrounds. Authur's extensive knowledge of the city and it's history made my stay even more memorable, as I was interested in seeing all the sights, not just the ones in the brochures.I was picked up from my hotel on time every time, and was not only shown the sights, but was taken to some very interesting and enjoyable restuarants and night spots, something that only some one who is local would know.More importantly, as I was travelling alone, Arthur's conversation and presence made me feel more at ease, as he was able to translate on my behalf in all manner of social and non-social interactions. I would certanly recommend that any one thinking of travelling to Moscow should contact Arthur before travelling, so he can point them in the right direction as to where to stay etc... I had such a good time that I now count Arthur as one of my friends.
