One of the most poetic structures of Ancient Russia is the church of the Intercession , situated in the flooded meadows at the confluence of the Nerl and Klyazma rivers. In spite of the fact that it was built of white stone the shape of the church is graceful and silhouette is elegant. The reliefs - female masks, the frieze and the figure of King David in the center - form the idea of the Intercession of the Virgin. This church is the masterpiece of white stone traditions of Andrei Bogolyubsky's reign. The church was reconstructed. Originally it was surrounded with the galleries and the hill it stands on was covered with white stone. As the part of the Bogolyubovo convent it is being used both by the museum and the church. It's on the World Heritage List of UNESCO.
