Discovering the history of Vladimir city

Vladimir - Russia

Vladimir is the only Russian city with an ancient history, which begins in the late 10th century. Prince Vladimir Svyatoslavich of Kiev founded the city on the bank of Kylazma River. Around the mid-12th century, the city became the capital of the Russian North-East State. Around the mid-13th century, the State was attacked by Mongol and Tatar tribes. Vladimir went into decline. The city’s revival began only in the 15th and 16th centuries, when Russia’s future capital, Moscow, gained the power. Since the 17th century, Vladimir constantly expanded and developed, while retaining the splendour and unique charm of an ancient city.   Today, Vladimir is the centre of the Vladimir region, its industrial, educational and cultural centre.
