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.

I found Arthur's details via a google search and discovered lots of excellent testimonials regarding his services for my trip to Moscow, and I was not disappointed! From the meeting at the airport to catching a train to Nizhny Novgorod Arthur took care of everything. Being English I feel that our customer service standards have slipped, but it is a breath of fresh air to find this standard of exceptional service does still exist! Without Arthur my trip to Russia would have been very mediocre, as I was travelling alone to visit a friend. Please if you are travelling to Moscow don't take a chance book Arthur; he is not only an excellent driver and guide with a geat deal of enthusiasm and passion for his city but also a gentleman and a friend. I will be returning to Moscow and the first person that I will contact before the visa office is Arthur. All the best to you, you are a top man!!! Neil Smith England!:)
