Suzdal: Russia's Golden Ring Gem

The ancient town of Suzdal is a must-see while in Russia. Situated near the capital Moscow, it is one of the main stops on the Golden Ring route, providing with some truly picturesque sites, landscapes, and monuments to discover.

One of the most visited landmarks in the lovely town is the Kremlin, dating back to the 12th century. The site is home to several churches and buildings including the Nativity of the Virgin Cathedral, which actually appears on the UNESCO Heritage List. Its charming blue star-decorated domes are an inseparable part of the scenery of this unique location.

Some other points of interest to put on your Suzdal itinerary are the Saviour Monastery of St. Euthymius, the Holy Intercession Convent, and the Church of the Assumption of the Mother of God. The latter one houses the relics of St Arseny and the icon of the Virgin Mary created back to the 16th century.

What is more, don't miss the chance to also visit the open-air Museum of Wooden Architecture and Peasant Life. Featuring numerous artifacts and original pieces of architecture, it depicts the rural lifestyle in the area before the urbanization.

The town might seem small at first, however, it is truly a concentrated hub of culture and history, a must-visit for those seeking to explore the authenticity of Russian architecture and customs.
