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.

My aunt and I were on a tour of Russia but we had extra time to schedule as we pleased. We had heard about Sergiev Posad and Abramtsevo. We found Arthur on the Internet and scheduled with him to go to those places when we had a free day.
Arthur planned our day beautifully. He met us exactly when he said he would. He had arranged for local guides in both places and we were delighted with them. Not only is he a great driver/guide, but Arthur is a fun person with whom to spend a day. We were totally pleased with the way he took care of us and when I return to Russia I will definitely seek him out.
