The main cathedral of the Vladimir. it was built in 1158-1160 in order of Andrey Bogolyubsky, the Duke of those times. After city fire of 1185 the cathedral was rebuilt and enlarged by Vsevolod III. The wall paintings were very rich and famous in Russian fields. In the end of XV century Andrey Rublyov participated in the paintings. The bell tower was built much later, in XVIII century, with interesting style of towers. Some photos of the cathedral in the travelogue.
The monastery was founded in 1191 by Vsevolod III near of Uspensky and Dmitrovsky cathedrals and now it is situated on the main city street. Till the middle of XVI century the monastery was the main among all Russian monasteris. The famous Aleksandr Nevsky was buried here (in 1723 the grave was moved to Saint Petersburg). In XVI-XVII centuries were buit many stone constructions of the monastery we see nowadays. In XIX century the monastery was completely reconstructed (1858-1868). In Soviet times the monastery was placed by KGB.
Near of Golden Gate there is Troitskaya Church. I'm sure it has the most wonderful architectural style among churches in the city. It was built in 1913-1916. Nowadays there is a cut glass ware museum.

"The title of the railway station"
This is the one of the Russian towns, that is included to the so called "golden ring of Russia". I should say that from Moscow to Vladimir it is really far by bus (it is about 3 hours), but if it is a traffic jam........ohhhhh...it will take no less then 4,5 hours. So..these weekends my friend and i were going there by bus and we stuck in that traffic jam.But of courseyou have another way to go there , it is by train from the Kurskiy train station (metro station Kurskaya (line number 6 on the metro map)). All the ways to go there cost 170 rubles one side.
