Night view of Patriarch Bridge

Night view of Patriarch Bridge

I've posted already a lot of interesting pictures of the cathedral of Christ the Savoir, but this time I decided to take a little bit different angle to show you more details of decorations of patriarch bridge. This picture I took without a tripod, from my hands, of course, it was not easy to take the sharp picture, but after several attempts I had the success. From the fence of this bridge I took another nice picture "Night view of Moscow Kremlin", which I recently added into my photo album "Moscow at Night".

Short history of this famous cathedral:

The Cathedral of Christ the Savior is a great monument to Russian military glory and superb example of Russian architecture. 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. The pedestrian bridge, called Patriarch Bridge, was added in 2004 to finish architectural ensemble surrounding this cathedral.

PS: Happy New 2008 Year!

I recently returned from doing an independent adoption in Russia. While in Moscow, I chose to use the services of Arthur Loukianov. I would highly recommend anyone needing services in Moscow to contact Arthur. As a single mom traveling alone the courtesy alone that Arthur showed was very appreciated. My flight did not arrive in Moscow until very late, Arthur was waiting. Arthur was in the lobby waiting for us the next morning and had already spoken with the Embassy doctors so they were expecting us. After the doctors appointment, we drove over to the Embassy to file the papers. Arthur again took us back for our visa interview. The next morning, I had to be at the airport around 5am, once again Arthur was waiting in the lobby for us. Arthur is very polite, very helpful and very talkative. He knows alot about Moscow, is a good driver and genuinely seems to want to help with anything you may need. I was short on time but he managed to squeeze in a short tour of the Kremlin, Red Square and a few other attractions. His fees are very reasonable and I feel he is also very dependable.

Please feel free to email me with any questions!
