Located at the confluence of Nerl and Klyazma Rivers in Vladimir region, the 'Church of the Intercession on the Nerl River' is a vivid monument of Orthodox culture in medieval age Russia.
However, the exact construction date is unknown. For centuries, the church was the first building seen when approaching the palace at Bogolyubovo.In spring, the area gets flooded, and it seems like the church is floating on water.
The church itself almost has not been reconstructed; only the dome's shape and porch-galleries have been slightly changed. 12th-century stonecarvings still decorate the ancient walls. In 1992, the church was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List as part of the site White Monuments of Vladimir and Suzdal. The church is situated 13 km north-east from one of the ancient capitals – Vladimir city. It takes approximately 3 hours 40 minutes to get there by car from Moscow. Services in the church are still held on a regular basis.
