Description: The artistic centres (White Monuments of Vladimir and Suzdal), in central Russia, play a significant role in the country's architectural history. The site holds a couple of outstanding 12th- and 13th-century public and religious buildings, in particular the masterpieces of the Collegiate Church of St Demetrios and the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
  The White Monuments of Vladimir and Suzdal is the name of a World Heritage Site in Russian Federation. The patrimony embraces eight medieval limestone monuments of Zalesye: Assumption Cathedral in Vladimir (1158-60, 1185-89); The Golden Gate in Vladimir (1158-64, with later modifications); The Cathedral of Saint Demetrius in Vladimir (1194-97); The castle of Andrew the Pious in Bogolyubovo (1158-65, with later modifications); The Church of the Intercession on the Nerl in Bogolyubovo (1165); The Suzdal Kremlin with the Nativity Cathedral (1222-25, built up in the 16th century); The Monastery of Saint Euthymius in Suzdal (mostly 16th century); The Church of Boris and Gleb in Kideksha (1152, with later mofifications). This World Heritage Site does not include, for reasons unknown, several closely related white monuments of Zalesye: The Saviour Cathedral in Pereslavl-Zalessky (1152); The Cathedral of Saint George in Yuriev-Polsky (1230-34, with later modifications); The Cathedrals of the Knyaginin Convent in Vladimir and Intercession Convent in Suzdal (turn of the 15th and 16th centuries). --Wikipedia.
