The oldest city in Russia Vladimir: history and sights

The oldest city in Russia Vladimir: history and sights

The history of Vladimir begins in the distant 990, when Vladimir Svyatoslavovich reigned in Russia. For its more than 1000 years, the city has experienced a huge number of events, including being in the status of the capital of North-Eastern Russia. Now the city is part of the Golden Ring of Russia and is located near Moscow. Did Vladimir's close proximity to the capital and rich history help him become a rich city?

Dilapidated and old houses everywhere

Despite its proximity to Moscow and its financial flows, things are not going so well in Vladimir. The main problem is the excess of dilapidated old housing, which is located throughout the city. Rickety one-story huts do not have an attractive appearance, and living in them becomes not only uncomfortable, but even unsafe. At the same time, almost all houses continue to be populated, because it is impossible to find funds for the purchase of new housing.

Even the center of Vladimir can not boast of amazing architecture in a good way, but in a bad way - still how. Dilapidated houses create a picture that the city has long been abandoned.

Inside as well as outside

Do not hope that the appearance of Vladimir's houses is deceptive and inside a completely different picture: the entrances of apartment buildings offer the guest to look at the peeling walls in cracks and mold, illuminated by a dim light bulb.

It is especially striking that air conditioners and satellite dishes are brought out of many apartments in dilapidated houses. This leaves hope that at least in the apartments, residents managed to create the necessary comfort, which in no way exists outside.

The situation in Vladimir is disappointing and raises many questions for people involved in the improvement of the city. Such a significant concentration of dilapidated housing, suitable only for demolition, suggests that the city has simply been forgotten and do not seek to return to it the majestic appearance that opened many centuries ago.
