Holy Assumption Cathedral, Vladimir

4.8
#1 of 83 in Sightseeing in Vladimir Oblast
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.

  • 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.

Where to stay in Vladimir

Even though Vladimir doesn’t offer too many places to stay, the diversity of options should meet the needs of most visitors. Most of the city's hotels are boutique establishments, with a few high-end, very luxurious options. Budget travelers can choose between several hostels, while those looking for self-catering accommodation can rent fully furnished apartments. As in many mid-sized Russian cities, most of the lodgings are concentrated in the center, with a handful of places to stay in more residential neighborhoods.
