Visit to Church of the Intercession on the Nerl

July 22, 2011, Vladimir

Dmitry Medvedev toured the church and looked at the interior decorations. Director of the Vladimir-Suzdal Museum Preserve Svetlana Melnikova told the President about the church’s history and its architectural features.

The church was built in 1165 at the location where the Nerl River joins the Klyazma River and is considered one of the most beautiful churches in Russia. At the time when it was built, the church represented a major architectural achievement.

Today, the church is administered jointly by the Russian Orthodox Church and the Vladimir-Suzdal Museum Preserve. It is included on the UNESCO world heritage list.
