My Dear clients from Australia, Liz ad Rob Adams, with background of famous architectural monument in Vladimir region, the church of Intercession on Nerl river, that stands on a small hill among broad water meadows a mile from Bogolybovo. The beautiful white stone church was erected in 1165 to commemorate a victorious, yet a sad campaign against Volga Bulgaria during which Andrey Bogolyubsky lost his young son Izyaslav. The church is magnificent, grand and gleaming white; the secret of its attraction lies in its perfect proportions. From a distance it looks like a splendid whole piece of sculpture. The reflection of the church in the water calls to mind legends of drowned cities.
