This cathedral was where Csars were crowned for quite a bit of Russia's history. The cathedral is beautiful from the outside and stunning inside. It's a must see on any Golden Ring trip.

This typical Russian Orthodox Church in 12th century with a tall belfry which locates on high terrace is "must see" tourist spot in Vladimir. Apart from the external facade, the gold domes and the surrounding environment, the internal part of the Cathedral should not be...More
