Depart from your Moscow hotel in a luxury minibus destined for the enchanting collection of villages known as the Golden Ring. During the drive, receive an insightful introduction to the Russian region from your guide; hear tales of power, wealth and opulence before arriving at your first stop, the historical town of Vladimir.
On a guided walking tour, delve into the town’s rich history as you visit impressive monuments like the Assumption Cathedral, home to treasures like Rublyov’s The Last Judgement frescoes. Stroll over to the equally enchanting Cathedral of St Dmitry to admire the incredible stone carvings on its exterior walls, and then enjoy some relaxed free time before returning to your coach.
On arrival in Suzal, revitalize with a traditional Russian lunch (own expense) and then amble around the ramparts of Suzdal’s Kremlin while learning about the town’s heritage. Visit several of the town’s world-class museums to enrich your knowledge of Suzal’s past and present; browse exhibits in the Museum of Wooden Architecture and Peasant Life before exploring the Museum of Crystal Glass.
After thorough exploration, return to your private vehicle and relax during the journey to your Moscow hotel, where the tour concludes.
