Photographer's Note

«...Князь Мстислав Изяславич расписал фресками святую церковь в Володимери Волынском и украси ее дивно».
Ипатьевская летопись, год от сотворения мира 6668, от рождества же христова 1160-й.
Успенский собор во Владимире-Волынском стоит до сих пор, содержится прилично и вполне такой себе отреставрированный.
***
In year 1157 Prince of Vladimir-Volinsky, Mstislav son of Izyaslav, started to build in his capital new cathedral, dedicated to the Repose of the Virgin. In year 1160 work was finished, and Cathedral stands now, looking more or less like it looked 800 years ago, with a bell-tower added much later.
***
I seem to be the sole advertiser of Vladimir-Volinsky on TE - hurray to me! Town are little and not so interesting, but it holds some really nice antiquities.
