Domes of St. Basil's Cathedral

Domes of St. Basil's Cathedral

By its architectural design, the St. Basil Cathedral comprises nine individual churches each crowned by a unique tower. The main church of the Mother of God is in the middle and 8 chapels crowned with onion domes positioned around the central form an eight-pointed star. This symbolizes the supremacy and protection of the Mother of God over all the Orthodox Church and over the Russian lands.

The church's design is based on deep religious symbolism and was meant to be an architectural representation of the New Jerusalem - the Heavenly Kingdom described in the Book of Revelation of St. John the Divine.

Hi Arthur, we made it safely to Riga and we are now just on the ferry to Stockholm. Riga is beautiful. With my blackberry I have email so it's great.

I wanted to thank you for such a wonderful trip to Moscow. What an incredible experience. I could not imagine Moscow without you! It was so much more fulfilling. Russian has always fascinated. We hear about your country so much in the news that it was important for me to experience it first hand.

I think in many ways North America and Russia are alike. We have very different histories, but in many ways we live the same in these times of rapid communication, TV and the internet. It is striking that without those tools cultures evolved so differently but with them we have many similarities!

Stay in touch. If you ever come to Canada you have to visit the capital city of Ottawa and I will happily be your guide!

Thank you again,
K
