  • This small church is considered one of the symbols of Russia. Its charm is in antiquity (mid 12 century dates) in proportion, refined décor and a scenic location. It is obligatory to visit for anyone who admires the Antiquities of Vladimir-suzdal Principality

  • An improved architecture of the Church I saw. A special place with special energy. Be sure to visit. Good to walk in the summer through the meadow. You can get from Vladimir by taxi or car. Before the bridge over the railroad parking lot. Further through 1.5 km scenic meadow a meadow walk. Postcard with a view of the NERL stands on the desktop.
