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.

We were given Arthurs name by another family from Ireland who had used his services during their adoption. We decided to try Aruthur and were happily surprised. We had 4 people plus luggage and he arranged for his brother to also come and pick us up at the airport. We also used Arthur for a tour of the city. If we had met Arthur on our first trip we would have seen much more of Moscow. What a pity!
