It doesn't get at much press as the larger cathedral 100 yards away, but it is more historic. Although the interior is rather bare and museum like, its exterior is spectacular. How did those carvings survive the years of harsh weather?

I visited the Cathedral of Saint Demetrius in Vladimir, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with a tour guide to explain the details and sketch the historic background. The site, which is magnificent with an atmosphere of deep spirituality, is well worth a visit.

Don't bother paying to see the inside, there's not much there. The carved exterior is what you want to see. Each small scene one tells a story in pictorial form.

A small cathedral that can only be admired from outside. The stone carvings on the walls make this building quite unique, with for example, many small lions to spot. Closed to the public.

The Cathedral locates near to Holy Assumption Cathedral but much smaller in size. This single-dome Cathedral is simple in outlook but still considered worthwhile to spend some time to have a look inside.

This Cathedral is only a few minutes from the more popular and larger Cathedral of the Assumption or Dormition. It is of a much smaller surface although very tall, it is austere in decoration inside, no huge iconostasis like that in the Dormition, but still...More

A few original frescoes of the 12th century have survived. Although smaller, it's a must see. It is withing walking distance of the Cathedral of Assumption.

Splendid white stone carving, myths become alive on the walls of the cathedral. And you can't miss a small viewpoint a few steps away. Strongly recommend.
