Tower with Crown and Spire

Tower with Crown and Spire

The beautiful building of a pavilion, which represented Ukraine republic in USSR, was built at the All-Russia Exhibition Center (former VDNKh) in 1939 and reconstructed in1947-1954 under the design by architects A. Tatsiy and K. Ivanchenko (Ukrainian architect). It is a historic and cultural monument of national significance. One of the most impressive features of the pavilion Ukraine is it's glorious tower on the top of the building.

The tower consists of an open-worked crown with a spire (you can see on this picture), which was "interwoven" of flowers, herbs, and spikes, rose over the building, sparkling with gold and increasing the height of the building to 42 meters.

The facade of the pavilion, made of alabaster panels, was decorated by golden spikes and then (after reconstruction) it was finished with Ukrainian majolica tile (you can see small part of the facade decorations right on the bottom of this picture).

If you read only one feedback, please read this one. If you don't believe what I write then read the 17 other PAGES(!) of testimonials to this truly great person and his service.
In a desperate hurry to find transportation from SVO airport to the hotel, I found Artur's number on the net. About to board the plane, I called him from London at 11am Russian time. By 6.30pm prompt he was waiting for us to clear passport & customs. An hour later (passport control!!), he was still there waiting patiently. He drove us back to the hotel already pointing out sites and facts on the way. Our Moscow experience had begun!!!!
Over the next few days, he gave us a personal, professional service like I have never experienced in my life. He was always early (even at 4.30 in the morning for our return pick up), always smiling, flexible, thoughtful, knowledgeable, passionate, courteous and hilariously funny.
He is a guide, a driver, a friend.
Please, don-t look anywhere else. Artur is Moscow!
