  • There are 2 negative factor leading specialists at UNESCO to underestimate this Cathedral. Firstly, survived a stunning samples of Roman plastics in Europe, and spoiled her availability not critics looked at very closely to the kinds of Yuryev-Polish. Apparently, believe that our stone carving is secondary in relation to the Catholic and Byzantine cultures. Secondly, the highly regarded authentic monuments, and St. George's Cathedral was destroyed, going from pieces with the loss of a significant portion of the building. And is it worth carved miracle, deprived of his honours. The subjects are various reliefs. Here and the angels and the Saints, and vegetable lace, and strange beasts. Similar to the carving on bones. Visit this attraction fans of historical speculation. Credited with creating this masterpiece even Hindus (eternal theme "we Aryans"). Supposedly, there was a Russian tradition of stone relief. This is not true: reliefs decorated and Vladimir Cathedral and the Church of the intercession on the NERL. Just tradition was interrupted due to the material cost times paying tribute to the Mongols. Didn't have the funds to build the expensive stone temples. And later, when not already paid tribute, fashion changed, the Church at 17 in decorated profusely, but otherwise. St. George's Cathedral one must see for sure, he is unique.
