Your experience

This is a perfect tour from Moscow, excellent if you are looking for a day trip.  The two beautiful cities of Vladimir and Suzdal are open-air museums, part of UNESCO.  They’re within the Golden Ring of Russia, and if you want to see and experience astonishing Russian medieval architecture and glory, this is the day trip for you.

We will pick you up from your hotel and transfer you to Vladimir.  On the way, your private guide will talk to you about the tourist attractions that you will see here – the Assumption Cathedral, Golden Gate and Demetrius Cathedral.  From Vladimir, you will continue along quiet country roads to Suzdal, which by contrast to Vladimir, has typical Russian wooden houses, a blue river and a world and life from another era.

There is a lot of history here, and a lot of beauty and this tour from Moscow is ideal for anyone who has an additional day in the capital city.  You will not only see these incredible UNESCO sites but also a traditional way of life, beauty and nature. And take note, there are forty churches here for just 10 thousand people!

Church of the Intercession on the Nerl

Visit the church between Vladimir and Suzdal, built on the banks of the River Nerl, combining beautiful architecture with exquisite natural beauty.

Suzdal Kremlin

Marvel at the Suzdal Kremlin, the oldest part of this UNESCO site, still in remarkable condition. Walk along the wall, it’s an extraordinary thing to do.
