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 was in Moscow with a friend of mine for 5 days, we're very interested in aviation and cosmonautics, Arthur was the only one offering tour to Monino in the winter season, he arranged a guided visit with an Ex Russian Pilot (English Speaker).

We really enjoyed the tour, and the friendly atmosphere during the various explanations about all the different planes grounded in Monino.

Driving back to Moscow, Arthur offered us a guided tour of some parts of the city where we didn't go in the previous days, such as Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, The Seven Sisters Buildings, Moscow Stadium, The University.

Arthur is very helpful and very well prepared, he knows where to drive you for god memories in Moscow.

I highly recommend to book a tour with him.

Ciao e Arrivederci dall'Italia.
