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.

    The beautiful Cathedral, strong place, a lot of people and always retire there exactly. It is also built on the money-about everything has something to sell, and it looks like just a business. Worth around it around, and stunning surroundings, and on the Cathedral itself. Different events are often held on the square in front of the Cathedral and in the Park

    Strikes the outer and interior decoration! The Cathedral itself is very winnable is situated on a hill which offers a very nice view! Special attention should be paid to the Andrei Rublev Museum of early Russian art mural!

    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.
