Convent of Intercession

Suzdal is a town and the administrative center of Suzdalsky District of Vladimir Oblast, Russia, situated northeast of Moscow, 26 kilometers (16 mi) from the city of Vladimir, on the Kamenka River. Population: 10,535.

One of the important sites in the town of Suzdal is the Convent of Intercession shown on this card. The convent was founded in 1264. In the centre of this beautiful white walled convent is the cathedral of the Intercession; it was an add on built in 1518 by an unknown person. The interior of the cathedral has no paintings or stained glass, it is just plan white stone walls all around. The church was and still is, one of the richest convents in Russia. The convent is the home of many nuns and is also the burial vault for twenty nuns of noble birth. Connected to the white stoned wall cathedral is an art museum you can tour. There are many beautiful paintings but none in the actual cathedral itself. This building is filled with beautiful arches and art created in the 16th and 17th century.  

This nice card was sent to me bu Irina.
