Dormition Cathedral

Highly recommended
Dormition Cathedral, built in the 12C, is the most famous building in Vladimir, where Dmitri Donskoy, Alexander Nevsky and all the great princes up to Ivan III were crowned. A UNESCO monument, its decor of gold, silver, precious stones and majolica tiles boasts remarkable frescoes by the great masters Andrei Rublev and Daniil Chernyi, including a Last Judgement full of serenity. Very beautiful 18C Baroque iconostasis.
