Holy Assumption Cathedral, Vladimir

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.

  • Even today a trip to Vladimir and suzdal-a pleasure! But something went wrong) assumption Cathedral-the great monument of architecture, place of memory Andrew Rublev: up to 1:00 pm-free/C13 to 17 paid (150rub/man without excursions; 300rub/person with excursion), at this time you can buy a candle, but put before an icon burning cannot be? The candle I put in full confidence that at some other time it necessarily light, rather than a second time will sell:)) Pleased and the Kremlin in suzdal: surcharge (50 p) entrance (first time in the last 30 years of my travels in Suzdal, a miracle happened) and the main entrance to the Kremlin closed) and the Cathedral of the Nativity can now do not visit for a fee, but only for a full ticket) in short, enjoy the Vladimir-suzdal museum complex:)) Shame mestechkovomu Guide!

  • Necessarily need to visit this amazing site! Suggest that you definitely take the guide-it's fast and cheap, next to the temple there is a larjok where you can take the official tour guide. But a good guide is another, much more profound acquaintance with history! We were very lucky with the Guide! Old school and incredibly much important information! Grateful for the tour!

  • Bela Catedral em Vladimir.
  • Very beautiful place
  • Beautiful
  • Amazing place! Very beautiful from the outside and the inside! A mesmerizing story of uspensky Cathedral. all intending to visit the city of Vladimir, you must visit here. Park, however, it is difficult to ... in the Cathedral is closed Monday for a visit .... tours on other days only 13:30 ... + photograph cannot be inside ... but it's all trivia compared to the beauty and history of the TEMPLE. P.s. CHAMBER are close by, it is also part of the Vladimir-suzdal Museum-preserve, a ticket to the second floor is not cheap, but who wants to see the icon of "Our Lady of Rublev Vladimirskaja"nado go, there are copies of ancient frescoes in the Andrei Rublev Museum of early Russian art life-size ... You can carefully consider. The art museum is very interesting.
