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 provided my husband and I with a perfect tour to the Golden Ring towns of Vladimir and Suzdal. It was the highlight of our trip to Russia.
His enthusiasm, knowledge and organisation were superb. He understood our needs and provided a wealth of information appropriate to the sights. We had time to explore all the historic locations and appreciate the amazing history, Russian architecture and art as well as visit the top class museums. Because of his photographic skills, Arthur took us to special photogenic locations ensuring that the photographic record of our journey was first rate. Last but not least, having a guide who could translate Russian into English so skilfully was invaluable and deepened our whole Russian experience.
