The area known as the 'Golden Ring' is one of the most scenic areas of Russia easily accessible to tourists from Moscow. Circuitous routes of 1 - 3 nights will allow you to sample the major highlights. Longer journeys can encompass more of the region if your time and money budget allow. Travel by road through to Novgorod and on to St Petersburg is also possible.

Whilst one can get to several of the major towns by train it is time consuming to travel around a number of them in an economical time frame. Also, by train means town centre to town centre. If you travel by car you cover the towns in a shorter time and see a lot more of the rural scenes as you travel between towns. Sudden diversions down a dirt road mean you can be in the centre of a collection of Dachas.
We can arrange both train and car options.
Variations can and will be offered.

Autumn has the region living up to another meaning of 'Golden Ring
Smaller roads mean stops in quite villages
Large towns bring classic buildings and remote areas take you back in time
Colours abound
Down dirt roads mean dachas and lakes
By car you have the freedom to stop and walk a bit
Typical car type used - at roadside cafe
