Interesting thing to see - outside Moscow

Can you please tell me what can we see outside Moscow (100-200km form Moscow). We will have a car or a van so driving it's not a problem.

Thank you for your help!

I believe from previous posts you are supremely confident in ability to deal with driving in Russia, and maybe more Moscow, but I would not treat a 200 km drive so "cavalierly". That is, believe Suzdal may well be right around this, but aside from challenges of getting around, think you will find driving will take a large chunk of time.

Also, a lot of this depends on where you start from in Moscow and time of day. For example, if you happen to be Southwest, then I believe it would be pure folly to consider Suzdal within your driving radius as likely would want to drive around Moscow, not thru it, adding distance and further time. And here, time of day will dictate whether this would even be feasible.

Our friend here is from Eastern Europe so no stranger to "energetic" driving is he (translation - fasten your diapers!) But traffic can be a problem

visiting small towns on the Golden ring would be a good idea.
