Vladimir, more sights to see

I've written about some hotels and souvenirs you might bring from Vladimir here and about Vladimir Art Centre here. In this post I 'll write about the Nunnery with mostly preserved frescoes, art gallery, restaurants of Vladimir.

Well, you will certainly enjoy  Uspensky Cathedral: not only Rublev's frescoes but also the rich baroque iconostasis.  However, take a walk around the city: there are many more sights to see.

The City Counsil

Knyaginin Nunnery, founded 1200. Although Uspensky Cathedral of the Nunnery was used as warehouse after the Great October Revolution, the frescoes of 17th century have been well-preserved. They even don't light candles there for better preservation of them.
