A worthwhile look into the history of Russia

Vasily took us to the beginnings of the Orthodox Church, adjusted perfectly to us, told a lot about the country and its people, and sharpened our view of the country. That was very interesting. The excursion is very worthwhile ... In contrast to lively Moscow, there is a more contemplative and devout side of the Russian soul. But you have to be prepared for a long day ... Depending on the traffic jam ... If you want to capture the places and the atmosphere intensely, you should treat yourself to an overnight stay in Suzdal. We were very satisfied ... maybe we were lucky with our guide.
