Golden Gate, Vladimir

(190+ reviews on the web)
Military Museum
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.
