Russia’s true icons lie in The Golden Ring – and we are not just referring to the religious art in the churches. This is rural Russia at its best: sleepy towns, ancient churches, quaint monasteries, and wooden homes with drooping eves which take one back into the 19th century.
The Golden Ring is made up of a series of small towns, among which Suzdal is indisputable crown jewel. Vladmir, Tver and Yaroslavl are within easy reach and a few nights in the Golden Ring is a peek into a different Russia.
The Golden Ring is a maze of narrow meandering roads, thickly forested countryside, gushing rivers and idyllic countryside life. Each town has a little Kremlin, churches with bulbous golden domes, and beautiful orchards and kitchen gardens. Enjoy a home-cooked meal or take in a local choir performance.
Get a peek into this fascinating facet of Russia that lies beyond the urban crush.
