DescriptionSuzdal and Vladimir are the main towns of the famous Golden Ring of Russia - the name for several cities and smaller towns north-east of Moscow. This is a great route to travel if you want to enjoy the quiet and peaceful life in the Russian province, view the beautiful countryside, and discover ancient architecture. This 1-day trip allows you to experience the flavor of old Russian towns, religions and culture. On the tour, take in the beautiful sights of the Russian countryside, see Russian architecture such as old churches made of white stone, and visit old fortifications, fortresses and beautiful monasteries. The first town in the Golden Ring, 179 kilometers to the east of Moscow, is Vladimir, an ancient capital of all Russian principalities. It is also the first stop along the Trans-Siberian route. The city dates back to the 11th century and is one of the oldest and the most important towns along the Ring. Next visit Suzdal, a calm ancient Russian town 38 kilometers north of Vladimir with around 13,000 inhabitants. Suzdal is officially protected from industries and the old-style architecture and buildings are kept intact. The hilly green town is very serene and walking around it is a pleasure. It’s a region known for its mindblowing number of churches, convents and monasteries. Judging by the spires and cupolas, Suzdal may have as many churches as people. If you are looking to discover old Russia with its picturesque landscapes and white-stoned beautiful churches, then this trip is for you.
