Moscow & Golden Ring | RUSSIA

Russia

Golden Ring Russia, Golden Ring Tour

Golden Ring Russia great travel option.Golden Ring refers to a loop of towns clustered towards the North-East of Moscow. Many of these towns date back to 11th or 12th centuries and were once the center of Russian political and social life. Notable towns on the Golden Ring include Sergiev Posad, Persylavl-Zalessky, Yaroslavl, Kostroma, Ivanovo, Suzdal and Vladimir among others.

You can visit all of these towns or handpick a few of them. Depending on your preferences, the tour may last anywhere from 6 hours all the way up to 4 days. The multi-day tour will include night-stay at the beautiful hotels in these ancient towns.

Sergiev Posad is known for its iconic Troiste-Sergiev Monastery which features beautiful onion domes in the shades of blue and gold. 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 an 11th century 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 known for its churches and cathedrals featuring exquisitely carved exteriors. The town is home to the famous Cathedral of St. Dmitry and 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.

Don’t miss out the St. Sergius Monastery on your trip either. This is a one-of-its-kind Monastery which is the largest in the Orthodox Church.
