Suzdal flourished int the 12th and 13th centruries, before the city of Vladimir became prominant and took the title of capital of the region away from Suzdal. In the mid 1200's, Batu Khan's horde invaded and destroyed much of the town. in the early 1400's, after rebuilding, Suzdal became known as a religious centre.
