Bogolubovo is a small, provincial town located 15 km (6 miles) east of Vladimir city at the confluence of the Nerl and Klyazma rivers.

It was founded by and named after Andrei Bogolubsky, grandson of the Duke Vladimir Monomakh. After coming to power in 1157, Andrei Bogolubsky, who was known as deeply religious man, began active construction of churches, fort, living quarters, and tower. Several years later Andrei was assassinated on the steps of his house, but his good beginnings were never forgotten. Later, in 13th century, a new monastery was established to honor Andrei and in 1702, he was canonized by Russian Orthodox church.

Today, magnificently decorated Uspensky Sobor (Assumption Cathedral) and Andrei's greatest creation the Church of the Intercession on the Nerl are among top historical and architectural monuments of medieval Russia.
