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.

Arthur was great. His knowledge of Moscow is deep and his ability to get the information across is done with real passion and excitement. He really loves and is proud of his city and very knowledgeable of the history of the country. Everything was organized perfectly and efficiently. What I really liked is his very happy disposition and his flexibility with plans and his ability to gauge when it is too much. He was really outstanding and I highly recommend him - oh and really good English!
