Five members of our club visited SI Club of Vladimir, Russia on 29-31st July, 2016. We are very grateful to Vladimir Soroptimists who showed us the unique beauty of Vladimir land - Suzdal, Murom, Bogolubovo, Vladimir.
We admired the views of the fantastic 12-13-century churches, cathedrals and monasteries, were charmed by bell-ringing of monastery bell-towers, saw the stunning 15-century Rublev's wall-painting in Assumption Cathedral in Vladimir, swam in the Holy Spring of Ilya Murometz, etc. Our ordinary tourist visit turned into a full-time pilgrimage!
This visit strengthened friendship between the two Russian SI clubs and helped share the project ideas, discuss achievements and problems.
Thank you, dear Vladimir friends, for your extraordinary hospitality and the admiration and delight we experienced at the excursions!
