Tour Details

« Zolotoe Koltso » – is a space located north-east of Moscow, between the Volga and Kliazma rivers, and bounded by ancient princely cities: Yaroslavl, Ivanovo, Kostroma, Pereslavl-Zalessky, Rostov Veliki, Sergiyev Posad, Suzdal and Vladimir – the cities form a symbolic circle. These are unique ancient Russian cities with traces of almost any historical epoch of the formation of modern Russia. They form the oldest centre of early Russian culture.

Their geographical position on the river routes gave it a very important strategic position and these cities experienced an exceptional expansion, as evidenced by the numerous monuments of ancient Russian architecture from the 12th to the 17th centuries (cupolas with star-shaped bulbs, simple whitewashed walls, vast Baroque monuments). True museums in the open air, the medieval cities preserve the memory of the most important events of the Russian history. Cathedrals, churches, convents, monasteries and museums of fine arts impress with their splendor and reflect the rich heritage of Russia.

This tour can be combined with « Moscow Classic »« Images of Russia » and « Russian Capitals », for more information about tour combination, feel free to contact us.
