Resting in Russia – Bogolyubovo

Bogolyubovo is one of the ancient settlements that arose during the time of Ancient Russia. Bogolyubovo appeared in the middle of the XII century by order of one of the princes of that time, Andrei. The town is located in the Suzdal district in close proximity to the city of Vladimir and is one of the significant points in the route of the well-known Golden Ring.

We cannot but tell the legend of the foundation of this wonderful place. The story tells of an unusual event that occurred with Prince Andrew during the transportation of the icon of the Virgin from Vladimir to Rostov. Having departed a little from Vladimir, the horses stood rooted to the spot and no one could drive them from that place. It was decided to stay and wait the night in this mysterious place, and at night a great event happened – the appearance of Our Lady to Prince Andrew. After this night, Prince Andrew decided to establish a city in this place, and later a temple was erected here.

In the future, the city was ruined and attacked, but in the end it was restored and today pleases tourists with historical objects of stone architecture.

In our century, this place is a magnet for crowds of travelers and pilgrims, here are Orthodox shrines and historical monuments included in the list of historical heritage of Russia.

One of the most famous places in the village of Bogolyubovo is the Holy Bogolyubsky Convent. It was the residence of Prince Andrew himself, then destroyed, rebuilt, managed to visit the museum and today is in the status of a monastery. In the monastery, sacred images on the throne, an altar, a granite floor and items of white marble decoration are especially valuable.

It will not be superfluous to visit the Cathedral of the Bogolyubsky Icon of the Mother of God, the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary of the Holy Bogolyubsky Monastery (located on the territory of the Holy Bogolyubsky Convent), the Church of Joachim and Anna, the Church of the Intercession on the Nerl (considered one of the most beautiful Orthodox churches).
