“Golden Ring” refers to the loop of the old Russian cities, which were the political and cultural center of Russia. Before Moscow became an outstanding city, which it is today.

Tour of the cities of the golden ring

The ancient cities were perfectly preserved and they also preserved old Russian monasteries, churches and museums

. Basically, they are a treasure-trove of historical architecture, countryside Russian culture and a stunning variety of scenic landscapes.

The actual Golden Ring comprises of a huge number of towns. We offer a tour to the most famous of these which include Sergiev Posad, Persylavl-Zalessky, Yaroslavl, Kostroma, Ivanovo, Suzdal and Vladimir.

Sergiev Posad is famous for the Troitsko-Sergievsky monastery, the domes of which are beautiful in blue and gold shades. The Monastery is also home to the famous Cathedral of the Assumption. Sergiev Posad is home to some of the most important Russian Orthodox Church structures. And for this reason, the town is often called the Russian Vatican.

Suzdal is another historic town which is known for historical churches, brilliant architecture and an open-air museum of wooden architecture.

Vladimir dates back to the 11th century and is a part of the Golden Ring loop. The city is famous for white stone palaces and cathedrals with carved facades. This type of decoration is rare in Russian architecture.  When in Vladimir, don’t miss the iconic Golden Gates.

Kostroma is another town in the Ring that dates back to the 13th century and is located at the confluence of Volga, Kostroma Rivers. When in Kostroma, visit the beautiful stone architecture of the Epiphany Cathedral, take a look at the classic frescoes at the Trinity Cathedral and make a trip to the Ipatievsky Monastery.
