Tour details

The most efficient way to do this tour is by comfortable fast-speed train from Moscow to Vladimir and locally by a private car/van. The tour lasts 13 hours but is programmed in a moderate pace with several moments of relax. This tour is a perfect opportunity to get familiar with Russia’s earlier history and culture and to experience two of the country’s oldest cities: Vladimir and Suzdal.

Vladimir, now a regional capital, boasts several monuments of XII century of exceptional historical and cultural value.

Suzdal, a little peaceful town that has preserved its medieval layout, offers an unrivaled display of churches, monasteries, palaces and bell towers built from XIII through XVIII cc. amid serene fields and forests.

Over the last 250 years the town limits have remained practically unchanged. It’s said that people of Vladimir make jokes about the Suzdalians’ excessive thriftiness. For example, they cut off their cat’s tail so as to reduce the heat loss when the cat comes in through the open door.

If you wish to stop for lunch we will go to one of the restaurants or cafes with traditional Russian cuisine to try borsch, blinnis, pies, dumplings with meat and many other dishes.

The journey is long but still worth it a lot!
