1 Day: Vladimir and Suzdal by train

book now!
During your Moscow tours you've probably seen lots of Old Russian churches and monasteries.  But if you really wish to find yourself travelling back in time we highly recommend that you visit two old towns Vladimir and Suzdal.

Vladimir is most famous for its three 12th century monuments : the five-domed Assumption Cathedral with magnificent frescoes of Andrey Rublev, the warrior-like cathedral of St. Demetrius notable for its unique carvings and the Golden Gate, which used to be a tower over the city's main gate.

A real wonder of the trip is an ancient Russian town Suzdal.  It was once the capital of Rostov-Suzdal principality. This town is like a museum under the open sky, its medieval monuments can tell you its old story.  This place is very quiet for there are no train stations or industries. Gazing at its blue river, wooden houses, picturesque meadows you may feel that time has stopped here.
