Vladimir Oblast is a federal subject of Russia ana its administrative center is the city of Vladimir. 
The 12th-century cathedrals of Vladimir, Suzdal, Bogolyubovo and Kideksha are inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Vladimir is the unique Russian city with the millennial history. Traditionally, the founding date of Vladimir has been acknowledged as 1108, as the first mention of Vladimir in the Primary Chronicle appears under that year. This view attributes the founding of the city, and its name, to Vladimir Monomakh, who inherited the region as part of the Rostov-Suzdal Principality in 1093.
