The Golden Ring is probably one of the most famous tourist routes in Russia. In fact, this is a region to the northeast of Moscow, which includes Russia’s most historical ancient towns of Vladimir, Suzdal, Sergiev Posad, Rostov Velikiy, Pereslavl Zalesski, Ples and Yaroslavl.
This is the very heart of Russia – the center of its ancient culture and traditions with the highest concentration of historical sites per square kilometer. Here, just a few hours drive away from Moscow city center, you will see the picturesque towns with its old whitewashed city walls and onion-domed medieval churches untouched by time.
The towns of the Golden Ring are the centers of traditional arts and crafts. So, if you are looking for something truly Russian, that is the place to get it.
