Description of the Vladimir Trinity Church

Vladimir Trinity Church that is commonly known as the Red Church due to color of its red bricks was constructed in 1913- 16 as an Orthodox Church of the Old Believers sect. The architect for this pseudo- medieval Russian church was famous architect S.M. Zharov. The fact that Trinity Church was constructed in the centre of Vladimir near medieval Golden Gate gives an idea how influential they were despite semi- legitimate existence within borders of the Russian Empire. It once had black oak iconostasis, but it didn't survive turbulent Russian history. During atheistic rule the church was closed in 1928 and in the 1960's it was on a brink of destruction, but active objection of Vladimir residents saved Trinity Church. Instead it was turned into an art gallery.
