Bell-tower and Cathedral

Bell-tower and Cathedral

The Bell-tower and the Cathedral of the Dormition in Vladimir look very impressive inside the old part of the city.
The bell-tower is a tiered structure (56 meters high) built in an eclectic style in 1810 (architect A.Vershinsky). Behind the bell-tower you can see the Cathedral of the Dormition which was for a long time the principal church of Ancient Russia. This building started the formation of the distinctly Russian architectural school. Grand Prince Andrei Bogoliubsky began the construction of Vladimir's Cathedral of the Dormition in 1158.

Hi Arthur, I got across your blog while surfing for russian landscape pictures. I have always been drawn to Russia because of its interesting story of which much of it has been misunderstood by the rest of the world. After reading your commentary about the war in the Caucasus, I agree that the western media gives Russia no chance at explaining itself as expected. But thanks to your site, people who really want to know the complete picture can have access to the other side of Russia which is often not told. I wish you God's blessing and much success in this year 2009.

Regards, rolly
