Cathedral & Moscow-River

Cathedral & Moscow-River

During the last two weeks Muscovites are very surprised to witness such warm temperatures at the end of November - beginning of December with average temperatures during a day about 4-5 degrees above zero Centigrade. Of course, the snow, which fell in the middle of November was melted very fast and the weather in Moscow became to be like in Europe, a lot of people talking that we are living now as like in London, mostly cloudy, no sun, a lot of rains and from time to time fog, even several days ago after a small rain I have seen a rainbow nearby my house - it was really impressive to see at this time of winter season!!!

Talking about the current weather in Moscow, I would like to show you the picture with a view on the famous cathedral in Moscow - the Cathedral of Christ The Savior, which I took recently with my clients from US (David and James - camera crew of Johnny Weir), right from embankment of Moscow-River, the opposite side from the Moscow Kremlin.

The Cathedral of Christ the Savior is the main church in Moscow. It was opened in 1883, in a memory of Russian victory over Napoleon in 1812. This Cathedral had been under construction for about 40 years (1839-1883), but it was destroyed in one day, in December 5th, 1931 - during the Stalin's time, because communists decided to build "Soviet Palace" for their meetings. The Cathedral was recovered during 1995 - 2000.

Don't be deceived by the title "Moscow Driver". Arthur is not merely a good driver, but an excellent tour guide and photographer. He picked us up from the airport and wasted no time in giving us a brief narrative of the city. We arrived in the afternoon and booked the evening tour. It was snowing but Arthur gamely lugged his pro camera and tripod to make sure we had great night time pictures which was a challenge by itself. He brought us to a nice grocery and helped us pick out food and rations for the next 2 days, a real money saver for us because the breakfast buffet at our hotel was pricey.

Arthur had boundless energy and passion during our 2.5 days with him. The fact that he is an engineer already suggests that he is highly educated and intelligent. His English is fluent and he is well versed in various subjects of local history, art and architecture. He never rushed and completely took in our pace which was exactly why we did a private tour so we were not herded in a bus like sheep. He is a consummate professional and patiently waits and speaks both like a history professor and long lost friend. At the end of each day, he promptly sent us all the wonderful portraits and pictures he took of us during the tour. Why even bother bringing your heavy photo gear when you have this guy? He was there till our last day to personally escort us to our train platform for our trip to St. Petersburgh.

Moscow is a vast city. Arthur is one of the best people not only to drive you through rain and snow, but to capture the precious moments and to make sure your trip will be remembered for a long, long time. A highly recommended tour guide and friend in Moscow.
