Red Tulips in Victory Park

Red Tulips in Victory Park

According to tradition, every year at the end of April flowerbeds in the public parks and squares of Moscow are planted with thousands and thousands of flowers to greet the spring holidays at the beginning of May. In spite of the long winter season and the cold weather in Moscow in April of this year, gardeners were able to cultivate more than 1.5 million tulips and daffodils of different colors and types.

Tulips are very beautiful flowers that embody for us all the glory of the spring season. We can't even imagine celebrations of Victory Day (May 9th) or May Day (May 1st) without the colorful tulips on the main squares, streets and parks of our cities. These flowers became the traditional harbinger of the spring holidays.

There are many types of tulips with a myriad of colors blooming all around the city which can be a beautiful sight during our celebration of the holidays in May. It is not difficult to guess that the most popular "on demand" color for this holiday is the red tulip. You might be interested to know that several years ago horticulturalists from Holland (the motherland of the most popular flowers in Russia :-) bred for us a special type of a tulip with a very big bud and dazzlingly bright color that was called "the Victory."

The Moscow weather was just perfect on May 9th, 2009, during the celebration of the 64th anniversary from the day of the Great Victory. On this special commemorative day, the warm sun and puffy clouds in the blue sky along with the millions of flowers all around Moscow gave us a special holiday atmosphere and cheerful mood.

With BEST Regards,

As you can read in the comments on either side of this testimonial, Arthur's many clients have been so satisfied and enthusiastic about his services that they seem to compete to articulate the best and most impressive recommendation of his services. We will not be an exception. Arthur was outstanding as a tour guide, driver, photographer, and translator. We saw the most important sites in Moscow and outside of Moscow. One of the highlights of our trip was Moscow by night which was an incredible introduction to this beautiful city. With Arthur’s help, we saw sites that are rarely available for viewing such as the Kremlin Palace. In addition, Arthur also showed us sites that are rarely visited such as the Gorky House, Tolstoi House, Chaliapin House and Scriabin House, which gave us an insight into how famous Russian writers, opera singers, and composers lived. All of these visits made our tour of Moscow richer and more insightful. Arthur seems to know every street in one of the largest cities in the world, and every shortcut to avoid the many traffic jams in Moscow. With his knowledge of Moscow and a genuine desire to satisfy his clients’ wishes, Arthur assured that we made the most of our time in this exciting city. As an avid photographer, he documented our entire visit to Moscow with photos that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. And finally, Arthur’s extensive knowledge of art, architecture, history, and religion enhances each tour. We strongly encourage anyone interested in an in-depth tour of Moscow to consider Arthur because he will exceed your expectations.
