Golden Ring cities
Northeast of Moscow there is a string of medieval towns which preserved their unique historical and cultural heritage and form a symbolic circle: Vladimir, Suzdal, Ivanovo, Kostroma, Yaroslavl, Rostov Velikiy, Peresslavl Zalessky, Sergiev Posad.Touring the Golden Ring, is like settling into the comforting arms of Mother Russia: it's a rural realm of whitewashed churches with golden onion domes, rippling meadows blanketed with owers, and samovars bubbling away in colourful gingerbread cottages.
In contrast to Moscow's cosmopolitan bustle, these ancient towns are a quiet getaway: you'll nd the spiritual heart of the Russian Orthodox Church here, as well as historic architecture, religious art, traditional cooking and time-honoured handicrafts. Because of its beautiful nature, Golden Ring is attractive for visitors all year round and offers something new and exciting during any season of the year. Visit to the cities of Golden Ring is usually combined with visit to Moscow.
