The Church of the Intercession of the Holy Virgin on the Nerl River (Russian: Церковь Покрова на Нерли, Tserkov Pokrova na Nerli) is an Orthodox church and a symbol of medieval Russia.

The church is situated at the confluence of Nerl and Klyazma Rivers in Bogolyubovo, Suzdalsky District, Vladimir Oblast, 13 km north-east of the ancient capital of Vladimir.

The church was commissioned by Andrei Bogolyubsky. According to some sources, it was built to commemorate Andrei's victory over the Bulgars and his son Izyaslav, who was slain in the battle. The exact construction date of the church is unknown.

The monument is built in white stone, and has one dome and four columns in the interior. Its proportions are elongated on purpose to make its outline seem more slender, although this architectural solution made its interior too dark for holding divine services.

For centuries, the memorial church greeted everyone approaching the palace at Bogolyubovo. In spring, the area would be flooded, and the church appeared as if floating on water. The church itself has not been touched by later generations; only the dome's shape has been slightly changed, and porch-galleries were added in the 12th-century, rebuilt in 18th-century and then demolished. The walls are still covered with 12th-century stonecarvings.

In 1992, the church was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List as part of the site White Monuments of Vladimir and Suzdal.

I don't about the temple itself, but about the places around. The most important thing of this temple is its river Nerl. It would not be her, there would be no fame. In steep flood the water rose so that the temple rose above the surface of the water, not over the fields as we usually see. And it's gorgeous. Now the river is still impressive. It is strong, clean and very attractive. I walked across the pavement to the temple along the river, and I just turned to her. Lo and behold, there's a path and a place to Mothercare over the slope. To sit, Yes to otdohnut from the influx of thoughts.
The temple itself is now a shell. Museum. I was there a few years ago, in the winter, looked exposure. He's significant, strong, ancient, but this is not a place of power. The essence is hidden for a long time. And the river here it is, next, power laps, do not want to take.

Near the Church a place where you can be reached by car, the station of Bogolyubovo. Then walk 1.5 km one way. It's certainly worth it!
