Description of the Cathedral of the Nativity in Suzdal

Cathedral of the Nativity in Suzdal is a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated within city Kremlin. It was originally constructed in the 11th century during reign of Vladimir II Monomakh. In 1222 dilapidated wooden building was taken apart and reconstructed in white stone and bricks. Original structure included three domes after Trinity. In the 17th century the church was reconstructed and two more domes were added. Five domes on a Russian Church represented God in the centre and the four Gospels given to Orthodox Christians. Colourful frescoes inside date back to 13th, 15th and 17th centuries. The interior of the church also holds burial tombs of Schuyski family, children of Yury Dolgoruky and many others. It was closed during Soviet Rule, but today it is open as a museum as well as working Orthodox church.
