Building is beautiful on the outside. Went inside (150 roebel entry price) but that was a mistake. Not much to see there. Would not recommend going inside.

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.
