What you'll do

We will leave Moscow in pursuit of the Russian soul - spend two days in the towns of Vladimir and Suzdal, which are both part of the so called Golden Ring: a number of ancient towns North-East from Moscow with rich cultural and historical background. Vladimir used to be the capital of Russia before Moscow - unfortunately for Vladimir, it was beaten down by the Mongols and lost its title. Now it is hard to believe this town was larger than Moscow! You will stroll through its main streets and parks, will see the ancient architecture, enjoy the beautiful views from the high bank of the river Klyazma. Later we will take you to a beautiful Bogolubov meadow - with one of the oldest churches in the region, also UNESCO heritage site. Any time of the year this church is absolutely magical! Finally, we will travel to Suzdal and have a good nights rest before spending the whole next day in this frozen in time town, where it is still common to see horse carts, where there are churches everywhere, and where local food is fantastic. Suzdal's cozy streets with beautiful wooden houses, its multiple museums and the relaxed atmosphere will take you back to the 1700s. In the evening we will come back to Moscow, and you will have a good understanding why Russians often says that it's not enough to visit just Moscow, to say you've truly experienced Russia.
