Nestled on the banks of the Kamenka River, Suzdal is a highlight of Russia’s Golden Ring. The historic town centre has been bypassed by the modern world and boasts many colourful onion-domed churches, ornate bell-towers, beautifully-preserved monasteries, ancient Russian art and architecture. This is a lovely place to wander amid historic buildings to the sound of the gentle peel of church bells.

Suzdal has all the picturesque charm of storybook Russia; a beautiful city untouched by modern industrialisation that has preserved its historic heart. Dating from the 11th century, the city was once the regional capital whose kremlin (citadel) protected the Russian border. However, the city traded this political status to become a major religious centre once the Muscovite tsars came to power in the 16th century. This historic legacy means that today, Suzdal Kremlin, along with the city’s numerous churches and five monasteries provide the visitor with a large number of impressive old buildings to explore and enjoy.
