Tower of Kazan Cathedral

Tower of Kazan Cathedral

The original Kazan Cathedral was built in 1636 with money donated by Prince Dmitry Pozharsky in honor of the miracle - working Kazan icon of the mother of God .
Unfortunately, like a lot of the churches in Moscow, the Cathedral was destroyed by the Bolsheviks, ironically on the very same day in 1936 that the church was meant to celebrate its 300th anniversary. The church was reconstructed in 1993 on the celebration day of the Icon of Kazan and has been hosting regular services ever since.
Today, Kazan Cathedral boasts a pink and white exterior replete with the ornate window frames and gables characteristic of early Muscovite church architecture, and crowned by a cluster of green and gold domes.

My daughter and I made a quick trip to Moscow...and used Arthur exclusively during our visit. He handled airport transfers, to/from Domodedovo and served as our guide for 2 and 1/2 days. He is very knowledgeable about the city's history - and custom tailored an itinerary based on our interests. Beyond the "must see sites (Kremlin, St. Basil,s, Red Square etc.) - we also visited the town of Sergiyev Posad (very worthwhile) and also took Arthur's tour of Moscow by night - which I highly recommend. As noted by other reviewers, Arthur is a very accomplished photographer - and the pictures he takes are a real bonus for his clients. I would highly recommend Arthur as a guide when visiting Moscow.
