Holy Assumption Cathedral, Vladimir
(4.8/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Admire some of the greatest works of celebrated icon painter Andrei Rublyev, including "Last Judgment" frescoes painted in 1408, at Holy Assumption Cathedral, a World Heritage Site. The construction of the church, where the princes of ancient Russia were crowned, began in 1158. Notice the elaborate carving on the exterior walls, which were innovative at the time. The interior is illuminated only by candles and the daylight streaming in from the high windows. It features a few restored, 12th-century murals of peacocks and prophets, and the Baroque iconostasis donated by Catherine the Great in the late 18th century. A classical style bell tower with a tall, golden helmet was erected in the early 19th century.

  • The Dormition Cathedral on its uniqueness surpasses all other cathedrals I have ever seen in Russia. White stone walls, the golden dome. Impressive size! The Interior, too, is not inferior to the external Imperial strut. In the Cathedral there are many ancient frescos. There are even Holy relics. In General, the faithful here like it precisely, but just interested in the history and culture of Russia will not be disappointed. The only thing that impaired the impression a paid entry. The current church somewhere, Ah-Ah-Ah.
