Blue and Golden Domes

Blue and Golden Domes

The beautiful Blue and Golden Domes of the main church, Assumption Cathedral, in the Trinity Monastery of St. Sergius looks very impressive. This Cathedral was built at the end of 16th century (1559-1585) by the order of Ivan Terrible. The church follows the forms of the Assumption Cathedral of Moscow Kremlin which was a symbol of the state power.

Nowadays the monastery (Trinity Monastery of St. Sergius ) carries the name of Lavra that translating from Greece means "main and most important monastery". There are four lavras in Russia, but the Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius (full name) is considered to be "Russian Vatican" and besides our patriarch's temporary residence is situated there.

Arthur is phenomenal as a professional guide, interpreter and driver. He is so knowledgeable about all aspects of Russian history that he enriches every museum visit and city tour. My trip to Moscow was enjoyable every moment that I was there because of the careful planning and expertise of Arthur in ensuring that I saw all the important sights and events. In addition, Arthur is a very careful driver and will transport you to every corner of Moscow very easily! He was always punctual and met me at the airport when my flight came in and then also made sure that I was on time for my return flight.

I give Arthur my highest recommendation for his level of knowledge in Russian history, his kindness and thoroughness in every aspect of ensuring that everything proceeded smoothly throughout the trip, and his overall terrific abilities as a guide and driver! Arthur is also a very, very talented photographer and at the end of your trip, he gives you a photo CD with wonderful pictures as memories of your trip to Moscow. Arthur, thank you so much for making my trip to Moscow the best ever.
