Explore the Golden Ring: The Citadel of Rostov

Rostov is a small countryside town located 200 km from Moscw. It is one of the oldest in the country and a tourist center of the Golden Ring. It was an important Viking trade enclave and fortress guarding the Volga trade route. First mentioned in the year 862 as an already important settlement, by the 10th century Rostov became the capital city of one of the most prominent Russian principalities.

Vladimir and Suzdal Private Tour (via Sergiev Posad, 2 days)

Vladimir and Suzdal are arguably the most famous destinations on the Golden Ring route that need no introduction! There is no way you can do both in one day unless you’re on a whistle-stop tour. So plan at least two days or skip one of them. I advise you to avoid 'one-day tours' as it will be exausting (at least 8-9 hours in a car/bus) and you'll see very little. If you have just one day, go to Vladimir by train. I offer a two-day trip with a nigth in Suzdal. Since I'm not a licensed travel guide, I will rather be your driver and travel companion during sightseeing providing all the necessary assistance whenever you need it. No boring history lectures or tight schedules, explore everything at your own pace!In order to avoid a long ride on a busy road we may go to Sergiev Posad first with a couple more stops at picturesque places for coffee and snacks.My vehicle is a Subaru Outback comfortable for 3 passengers (but technically suitable for 4).
