24. November 2009 by Michelle 0 Comments

If you need a break from the big city living in Moscow, head 150 miles northeast to The Golden Ring, Russia’s best kept secret of ancient cities. These were the locations of many historical events and are home to famous Russian churches, monuments, fortresses and monasteries.

 

There are 7 main cities of the Golden Ring: Vladimir, Suzdal, Ivanovo, Kostroma, Yaroslavl, Rostov Velikiy, and Pereslavl-Zalesskiy. Each city is unique and varies in size and landscape, but they all share the rich culture and history of Old Russia.
