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.

This was my second time using Arthur's services - this time with a group of 7 people, and I found him every bit as impressive the second time around. He is one of those people that was simply born to do this job, and has all the necessary skills. He's thoughtful and accommodating, very knowledgeable, passionate about his city, and just great fun to be around. A great bonus is his photography skills and the fact that he willingly shares all his photos of your trip with you at no extra charge. You can easily hire many guides that would be adequate, but if you want something extra-special for your trip, then Arthur is your guy!
