Vladimir & Murom 2011

2 days trip to Vladimir and Murom this summer.
The ancient land of Vladimir-Suzdal played a special role in the destiny of Russia: it was the source of the nation state, of national culture and spiritual strength . The greatness of Vladimir-Suzdal found physical embodiment in the white lime-stone churches of the twelve and thirteenth centuries. Great trip , very enjoyable.
