St. Nicholas on the Bersenievka

St. Nicholas on the Bersenievka

This beautiful church is about 350 years old. It is located on the small ireland on the Bersenievskaya Embankenment, on the other side of the Moscow-River from the Moscow Kremlin. The rumors says that in the middle of 17th century they built a tunnel undergraund, at least 500 meters under the river, between this church and the Kremlin. This church and place have very interesting history.

In 1656, the prominent Moscow official Averkii Kirillov replaced a wooden Church of St. Nicholas on his urban estate fronting the Moscow River with a brick church dedicated to the Trinity, but persistently known as the Church of St. Nicholas on Bersenevka. Completed the following year, the church was attached to a rare example of 17th century brick domestic architecture in Moscow. That structure was subsequently much rebuilt, as were ancillary parts of the church, but the central part has been well restored, particularly the roof.

We are jsut back from Russia with our new adopted son Denis. We heard about Arthur before we travelled so we booked him for Airport transfers and some shopping & sightseeing. He was FANTASTIC! We had another few friends who wanted to also use his services so Arthur brought along another driver Dima to accommodate us! Besides being way cheaper that the hotel transportation or regular taxis he offers a super service. He's interesting, friendly and nothing is too much to ask him to do. He took me shopping with a friend and helped pick out baby formuala and other essential food items. He then packed groceries & carried them to the car - what more could you ask for!! A truly Moscow Star!
