Sergiev Posad

Sergiev Posad

Named for Saint Sergey Radonezhsky, Sergiev Posad features one of the most spectacular monuments of old Russian architecture, the Trinity Lavra. Why you should see it


Suzdal is often referred to as the city-museum of the Golden Ring as it boasts an abundance of historical monuments Why you should see it


The second largest city behind Moscow in this part of Russia, yet beaming in provinciality with traditional clothing and craftwork in abundance. 1000 years of Russian history at your fingertips Why you should see it

Just to let you know that all arrangements for the trip you organised for us to the Golden Ring worked perfectly and was a great success. The timings were just about right for us, the vehicle and driver were of excellent quality, and the guide spoke excellent English (just as well since our joint Russian was close to zero !!). For your future reference, the 'At the Golden Gates' hotel was delightful: perfectly located in the centre of Vladimir, and recently refurbished to a high standard of decor. The lack of air conditioning was a bit of a problem, given that the temperatures were extraordinarily high, but not a huge issue.

Service and food were very good too, so we would unhesitatingly recommend it to future visitors to the town. And, of course, we loved all the towns and sights we visited - perhaps the highlight being that we happened, quite by chance, to visit Suzdal on the day of their annual 'cucumber festival'. So, in addition to enjoying the beauty of the town, it was wonderful to be able to join in with locals having fun - a great event.

So, thank you from all 4 of us.
