Golden Gate, Vladimir

(4.3/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Get a glimpse of Vladimir's former greatness at Golden Gate, which once served as the main entrance to the city. Built in 1164 during Alexander Bogolyubsky's reign, the gates used to welcome foreign ambassadors, special guests, and returning warriors to the city. Today the gate stands at the center of a roundabout, evocative of France's Arc de Triomphe. Notice the thick walls constructed with white stone, the oak sections gilded with copper sheets, and the golden dome crowning the top. Walk through the gates for good luck, or head inside to learn more about Vladimir in the history museum. If you are just passing through the city, the gates can be seen easily by car or foot.

  • Most impressed diorama assault on the city by the Mongols 1238 on February 7 of that year. An eerie spectacle. Otherwise poor enough Exposition. Would very much like to be able to go to the observation deck.

  • Qualitative exposure with diaramoj, short historical story in audio recording and military attributes of different years and many wars. The boys were thrilled.
