Why Visit Vladimir

Ancient Vladimir is justly considered one of the most attractive tourist destinations during the Golden Ring of Russia journey. Visit a beautiful and original Russian city with a long history, and you’ll be filled with fresh impressions of the encounter with antiquity.

The first Vladimir landmark that can never be ignored is the Golden Gate, a majestic symbol. Built in the XII century, it represents the only preserved ancient Russian city gate. It`s interesting to know that the Golden Gate served both as a fortification and a triumphal arch.

Now there is a museum inside that introduces the visitors to the history of the Mongol invasion. The red-brick Trinity Church is another must-see on your Vladimir tour. The church shows us an example of a so-called pseudo-Russian style, which has both ancient Russian and Byzantine architectures.

The original “cross laying” brickwork and the high domes and the bell tower create a stunning effect: a bulky building looks pretty compact.
