Holy Assumption Cathedral, Vladimir

(4.8/5 based on 600+ 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.

  • Generally liked. But without a guide makes no sense even. Has mainly historical value. As the temple works in the morning and in the evening.

  • When you travel you must visit Vladimir uspensky Cathedral, which is included in the UNESCO World Heritage site. Worth at least a stroll around this magnificent cathedral. The Dormition Cathedral was founded in the year 1158. It is nearly 900 years old, and it's simply amazing. It is really beautiful and majestic.

  • Assumption Cathedral in Vladimir in my opinion a place for compulsory attendance. Built in 1154godu!! Original frescoes Andrei Rublev 1407god! From here started Russia Orthodox! Be sure to take a tour! Is not expensive, but everything in detail guide will tell you. And about fire, and what is the difference between frescoes Rublev from frescoes and Black history. The guides work with 13-00 to 16-45. And after the excursion you can once again walk through the Cathedral. Amazing sensations. Holiness, spirituality. And like murals already partially faded and dull, and you want to look at them and see.
