Holy Assumption Cathedral, Vladimir

(600+ reviews on the web)
Church Tourist Spot
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.

This is a very energetic place, from George of Vladimir right shock beats! Yes, from 12 till 16.45 Cathedral opened as Museum entry 100 r. as in all places of worship belonging to Vladimiro-Suzdal'skomu Museum reserve, I don't find anything objectionable, must be the same on the reconstruction and maintenance of monuments money make the city .... Come on, they're free! Church with candles and souvenir shop on the street, next to the Cathedral!

  • Disgusting from the tourist point of view! Surely you cannot make schema with location Art murals, Museum shop and so Advise the administration area to go in any Catholic country and see how the case of the Union of Church and State. And do not hide behind features of orthodoxy. We want to make Russia tourist and foreigners can buy nothing.
