Assumption Cathedral Vladimir

Assumption Cathedral Vladimir

It is the unique monument of the white-stone architecture of Vladimir and Suzdal. The church was built in 1158-1160 by prince Andrei Bogolyubsky as a principle church of the Vladimir-Suzdal principality. The cathedral stands on a high hill over the Klyazma river. Its original shape expressed the dignity of Vladimir as a capital city and the power of the prince. Its cupola was shining like gold, its exterior walls were decorated with carvings and paintings. The vault rested on 6 pillars and was crowned with a single dome.

Aurthur was our first introduction to Russia. We toured all day and evening until midnight. It was the perfect introduction to Moscow and Russia. His enthusiasm for giving us the best experience possible was fantastic. Arthur's photographic skills are excellent as well. We had a memorable trip with a memorable guide!
