Photographer's Note

Isn't this beautiful cathedral looks magnificent here? This picture is my favorite nowadays. Recently, when I was crossing the Patriarchy Bridge with my client from Indonesia to visit Cathedral of Christ the Savoir, I took one picture with my client on this bridge and then I looked on new picture, I was so impressed by it's miracle atmosphere so I decided to make several more shots here. I was very lucky on this moment, because of it was end of the day and getting dark; the lights on the bridge and illumination of exterior the cathedral were just turned on; the lights inside cathedral also were turned on because of the service inside cathedral was recently started.

I think that this famous cathedral achieves to be special, as like on this picture, and called “fairy-like” because of it is:

- Great monument to Russian military glory to commemorate the feat of Russian people in the Patriotic War of 1812;
- Built in Russian-Byzantine style to mark the origin of Christianity in Russia
- Largest church in Russia and visible from all over central Moscow;
- symbol of Russia's spiritual revival after atheistic Soviet times and starting democracy from 1990s.
- Part of Russian and Moscow life as the main cathedral of the country.

More information with important dates from its history you can find in my previous pictures with this majestic cathedral. Thank you for your interest to Russia and its unique architecture!
