Church of the Intercession on the Nerl

The Church of the Intercession on the Nerl is a Russian Orthodox church situated at the confluence of the Nerl and the Klyazma in Bogolyubovo, Vladimir Oblast. It was commissioned by Andrey Bogolyubsky, a 12th-century Russian grand prince, and has been little altered since. The building is constructed in white stone, and has one dome and four columns in the interior. Its proportions are elongated on purpose to make its outline seem slenderer, although this architectural solution restricts its use in holding services. In 1992, the church was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as part of the White Monuments of Vladimir and Suzdal.
