Golden Gate and Traffic Light Trails in Winter Holidays
Long exposure photograph with a view from the beginning of Dvoryanskaya (Noble) street on the majestic Golden Gate of Vladimir and traffic light trails in winter holidays.
The western gate of the ancient Vladimir city was constructed in 1158-1162 in the reign of Grand prince of Vladimir-Suzdal Andrey Bogolyubsky (Andrew the Pious). It became the main entrance into the old town protected with mighty earthen ramparts, wooden towers and walls. The gate is of exceptional interest as an extremely rare example of medieval military defensive architecture. The structure was topped with a barbican church dedicated to the Deposition of the Virgin's Robe and symbolizing the Theotokos's protection of Andrew's capital.
