Only earthen ramparts remained from the walls and towers of the Suzdal Kremlin, but the temples and the residence of the Suzdal church rulers - the Bishops' Chambers - have almost completely survived. The first house for the archbishop was built in the 15th century opposite the Nativity Cathedral, then a refectory church with a high porch and an open gallery on the arches was erected, connecting it with the second tier of the bell tower with an overhead passage. At the end of the 17th century, all the buildings were combined into an integral complex, erecting a "miracle-like" Cross Chamber, whose vault seemed to hang in the air without a single column.

What to Watch

Since the middle of the 20th century, the Bishops' Chambers have become the object of the Vladimir-Suzdal Museum-Reserve.  The premises hosted an exhibition telling about the history of the region and the Kremlin. In 1970, the props of the dilapidated vault of the Cross Chamber were removed and returned to its former "pillarless" appearance. Even in our time, its dimensions are impressive - 338 sq. m of area and 7.5 m of the height of the vault, supported by very graceful arches, were restored according to documents of the 18th century and testify to the unusually high skill of Russian architects.

On a dais at the end of a long deliberative table is a carved chair for the archbishop, in front of it is a box with a seal, the rest of the tabletop is occupied by inkpots, sandboxes, a scattering of documents, books and maps.  Vladyka's place, chairs and benches along the walls are covered with scarlet cloth. Under the glass lies a rare handwritten Gospel presented by Prince Pozharsky to the Savior-Evfimievsky Monastery.

A rich exposition of icons in the refectory is opened by the "Our Lady of Vladimir" of the 15th century. In the second hall, images of the 16-17 centuries are exhibited, among them one more on the same subject by the court iconographer Simon Ushakov. Other rooms contain artifacts from archaeological excavations, weapons, jewelry and household utensils of the inhabitants of ancient Suzdal.
