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 :-).

My husband and I used Arthur's professional services on our first-ever trip to Moscow; during our adoption process. He took us to all the popular tourist destinations...The Kremlin, Red Square, St. Basil's Cathedral, GUM and along Old Arabat Street for good bargain shopping. On the way to the airport, we treated him at his favorite Russian pub. We got to try new Russian foods which were all fantastic! He is very knowledgeable about his city and explains the history to his clients with confidence and pride. If it wouldn't have been for Arthur we would not have seen Moscow the way we did! During our second trip to finalize the adoption of our baby boy we did not have the extra time for sightseeing and besides, Arthur was already booked with other clients so we did not get to see him. We were saddened, because we truly felt we'd met a friend! But living up to his expectations, Arthur called our hotel room "just to say hello and best wishes to our new family". What a fantastic guy! One thing that stands out about Arthur is his professionalism and the way he carries himself with confidence, and he is by far the best English-speaking Russian we met! We highly recommend Arthur's services with the guarantee of a memorable experience. One day, we hope to cross paths with Arthur again!! The McPike Family.
