Full description
Start your journey in the early morning with your private guide, on a comfortable high-speed train to Vladimir, where you will meet your driver to go to Suzdal. Visit the open-air museum of wooden architecture and peasant life and learn about the Russian rural community. Head toward Suzdal Kremlin where the history of the town dates back to the 11th century. Walk to the Market Square and taste Medovukha - a traditional Russian honey-based alcoholic beverage. Marvel at the inexpugnable walls of St. Euthymius Monastery which once was a prison for dissidents. Drive to Vladimir - the capital of the Golden Ring and once the capital of Russia. The city was a cosmopolitan and artistic center at the end of the 12th century and the Seat of the Orthodox Church in the 14th century. Admire the shallow relief carvings on the white tall walls of St. Demetrius cathedral that were created by various artists. Your guide will explain to you the significance of the Assumption cathedral, which was the main cathedral in Russia before Moscow became the capital of the country, in the 15th century. Walk along Bolshaya Moskovskaya street - the main street of Vladimir that leads right to Moscow - to see the authentic architectural look of the city. Finish your day at the foot of the Golden Gate - the only surviving gate out of the 7 that protected the ancient borders of the city from enemies. Head to the railway station to travel back to Moscow.

Excellent tour. 100% recommendable

Fue un tour excelente. Nuestra guía Tatiana fue muy amable y con un amplio conocimiento de la historia (es historiadora). Todo el tiempo estuvo pendiente de nuestros deseos y necesidades y nos guió perfectamente por todos los lugares que visitamos. Tatiana tiene un amplio dominio de los idiomas y los habla con fluidez con un tono de voz muy agradable. Tuvimos además la oportunidad de conocer la nieve en todo su esplendor. Suzdal es un pequeño pueblo con una gran historia religiosa que vale la pena conocer. También visitamos Vladimir. En fin es un tour muy recomendable para conocer parte del anillo rojo de Moscú.
