What to expect

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 the Kremlin of Suzdal, 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 impregnable walls of St. Euthymius Monastery which once was a prison for dissidents.

Explore 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.
