Don’t miss a great chance of seeing fairy-tale town of Suzdal in Winter
In order to feel real Russian winter one has to visit the a jewel in the crown Russian Golden Ring – Suzdal, city, which always retains fairy winter weather, as if the nature there is still silent in fairy dreams.
Suzdal, a living museum city, is a part of Russian Golden Ring, located on Kamenka River. The historically famous way from Moscow to Suzdal is runs through Vladimir – one of the oldest Russian cities, founded in 990 by Vladimir Svyatoslavich, the Grand Prince of Kievan Rus'. There’s a great number of the most precious monuments here: the gold-domed Assumption Cathedral, Golden Gates (the only preserved instance of the ancient Russian city gates), Saint Demetrius Cathedral… It takes only 3 hours to get to Suzdal from Moscow, the route is about 217 kilometers (130 mi) on Moscow-Nizhny Novgorod Highway.
The Church of the Intercession of the Holy Virgin on the Nerl River (1165), one of the most poetic works of ancient Russian architects, is situated at the confluence of Nerl and Klyazma Rivers in Bogolyubovo, a settlement located some 10 kilometers (6.2 mi) north-east of Vladimir. Its white walls in the midst of tree crowns allure people from afar.
Suzdal’s architecture remains almost untouched, the historic-cultural monuments have kept the ancient style and texture. It’s perfectly normal for Suzdal that the interior in almost all its hotels is decorated in ethnic Russian style.
Visiting Suzdal at winter is like travelling in a book of fairy tales. Suzdal will win every heart with its generosity, hospitality, sincerity, warm-heartedness and endless love of its inhabitants to the city and its guests.
