Images of Russia. Photo #2. Suzdal

Suzdal, Vladimir Oblast, Russia.

Suzdal is one of the oldest Russian towns. In the 12th century it became the capital of the principality, with Moscow being merely one of its subordinate settlements. Nowadays Suzdal is the smallest of the Russian Golden Ring towns with the population of about 10000 (2015), but a major tourist attraction. Several of its monuments are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Images of Russia. Photo #1. Vladimir

Vladimir, Russia.

The Church of the Intercession of the Holy Virgin on the Nerl River.

The monument is built in white stone, and has one dome and four columns in the interior. The church itself has not been touched by later generations; only the dome’s shape has been slightly changed, and porch-galleries were added in the 12th century, rebuilt in the 18th century and then demolished. The walls are still covered with 12th century stonecarvings.
