Church of the Intercession of the Holy Virgin, Bogolyubovo

Church of the Intercession of the Holy Virgin features one of the most elegant exteriors in Russian sacral architecture. A symbol of medieval Russia, this World Heritage site was built on a man-made hill in approximatley 1165. Prince Andrei Bogolyubsky commissioned the church to celebrate the victory over the Bulgarians and to commemorate his son's death in the battle. Walk the stone-paved road through the meadow to approach the church. Admire the 12th-century stone carvings on the exterior walls. If you visit in the spring, the church will appear as if hovering on water because the area floods.

  • All recommend small tour "golden ring". I went from despair, because in September I turned 55 and our State for me "a well-deserved pension." September turned out to be not a definite day of sunshine, the next day of drizzles. But even this circumstance could not spoil the divine impression from Vladimir, Suzdal, Bogolyubovo, Yaroslavl, Rostov, Sergius Posada, but the strongest impression I have left from the Church of the intercession. Many saw temples, churches, cathedrals, but the fuse in memory of their reflection in the waters of r. Nerl. Can't say nothing about songbirds and kolokolnom jingle accompanying us. Yes and a little bit of comfort, hotels, food was pleasantly surprised. Can if ...

  • And while we, guests from Moscow, were in Vladimir one day but felt it impossible not to visit the Church of the intercession. It is situated not very far from the city, 10 minutes by car (we took a taxi). And then we have to go on the net field somewhere. Prohvatite with a headdress, and then getting sunstroke in the summer it's easier to light! The Church is small, it simultaneously fit no more than 10-14 people. You can buy a candle in a church bench and put her in front of the icon. Sold all sorts of souvenirs, there are toilets (you know those blue boxes). The place is very pleasant, the unity with nature and your own soul. Recommend to visit.
