Domes of St. Basil's Cathedral

Domes of St. Basil's Cathedral

Beautiful colorful onion domes of the famous St. Basil's Cathedral in the Red Square.

The St. Basil's Cathedral is the world known Russian architecture masterpiece. It was built in 1561 to celebrate Russian victory over Kazan kingdom. The architects built 8 small churches around the main dome and made the paths from one church to another. Every church is devoted to a separate saint. The cathedral was being rebuilt over and over, so what you see now is in fact about 200 years old.

I visited Moscow with my parents in early April 2012 and we hired Arthur to show us around the city for about 2.5 days. We were all very pleased with his services as his English is excellent, he is reliable and he knows the city in and out. He not only knows all the major attractions that most first-time tourists want to visit, but also helped us customize the tour to some of our own interests - including guiding us to Jewish sites of interest, and also a fascinating site for exploring Russian military aviation history! On top of this, Arthur's photographs are professional quality - the photos he took of us at St. Basil Cathedral and of various viewpoints on our evening tour are particularly special. In fact they are the nicest photos I have from any trip in recent memory! Many thanks again from my parents and me!!
