2) Using the public train from and return to Moscow.

Option A with car and private driver.

Day 1: Moscow to Vladimir and on to Suzdal

Early morning departure from Moscow (0700) for Suzdal.

Suzdal has a visual appearance that many of us perceive we will see in all Russian towns or cities; scenes made real in our minds by books, television and the movies. Within the small precincts of the town, you can see some of the best examples of monastic and village architecture possible. There is a fine ‘folk village’ museum where examples of old Russian architecture are on display in an open air museum. Here amongst many wonderful sites you can approach the white walls of an ancient, but still practicing, Orthodox convent and pass through its gates.

From 1100hrs to 1700hrs Tour of Suzdal and Vladimir, one of the early capitals of old Russia. Here you will see such famous sights as the ‘Golden Gate’.

Day 2: Suzdal to Moscow

Morning free for the town of Suzdal.
1200 hrs: Time to farewell the Golden Ring and drive back to Moscow.
