    The temple was built by archers on their tithing. In Soviet times it was Studio Soyuzmultfilm. Now the temple fully restored. Beautiful interior decorations. A lot of icons. In the Temple of the great Abbot of father Alexander!

    Church of the Savior of the Transfiguration on the sands, perhaps the best that was able to see during a sightseeing stroll in the old Arbat. The temple was built in the early 18th century, repeats the architectural style of the older buildings, is a monument of Federal significance, is in very good, well-maintained condition. The five-domed church, inside there is a refectory with a fairly low ceiling and some mysterious metal constructions above, clicking on which you can get into the main room with a rich iconostasis. You should pay attention to the mural, which was damaged during the Soviet period, when traditional church was used for other purposes, but was subsequently restored. Recommend a very notable Temple.

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
