I always feel guilty going to a cathedral during a service, but noone seemed to mind. These orthodox cathedrals are really not very congregation-friendly, no seats and it is difficult to view, but the pomp and ceremony was really extreme. The souvenir/icon/candle shops at the back did not stop. The interior decoration is flamboyant and impressive. Vladimir lacks the country charm of Suzdal, but its major sights are great.

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.

So many nice churches in Russia and this is yet another classic !

The views from the viewing platform are fantastic but it's the church that is the stand out.

The Assumption Cathedral is beautiful and a definite must see, it’s an open air museum so good to visit in nicer weather.

This cathedral sits on a ridge overlooking the river and countryside. It is large and a little dark inside. Not our favorite church. A little pricey too.
