Vladimir, one of the communities in Russia 's celebrated "Golden Ring, " has a great deal to offer visitors. The city owes its fame, in part, to the white-stone architecture of several of its ancient buildings that date back to the 12th century, and also to the major role it played in early Russian history.
But, as this website demonstrates, contemporary Vladimir has much more to offer than architecture and a rich history, which according to some accounts is over one thousand years old. Modern Vladimir boasts a vibrant culture with many world-class musicians, dancers, artists and artisans. There are also excellent museums and exhibits, along with first rate hotels and restaurants, and interesting things to buy--all at reasonable prices. Plus, most important, there are wonderful people to meet.
There is much to see and do in today's Vladimir!
