Golden Gate Military Monument, Vladimir
(4.3/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Get a glimpse of Vladimir's former greatness at Golden Gate Military Monument, 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.

  • 可能我白天去的缘故,并没有想象中伟岸。就凭它是中世纪唯一残存的城门就很了不起了,象征意义更大些。沿着圣母升天大教堂直走就是,觉不可能错过因为在马路正中间真是想忽略都没可能。要拍照很困难,先不说车来车往的没空挡,头顶蜘蛛网就很扫兴,没坐公交车走走也没多少路。 
  • This is the main gate of the Kremlin (Fortress) in the age of the Principality of Vladimir was built in the 12th century. Still traces of earthworks in the South. Height 7-8 m?. In 1238, the strongest field at the time has been too easily broken by the Mongolian army boasted.

  • Located on the main avenue in the Centre of Vladimir and embedded in a roundabout. Nothing to highlight. The saw on the outside.
