Maybe you don’t know that there is a great difference between Moscow, St. Petersburg, and all other Russia. It is not easy to understand life here in Moscow when you are stuck in the traffic jam on your way to the Kremlin with a coffee in your hand!
Visiting Russian provinces is a great opportunity to explore the real Russia and to see the common life of its ordinary people. The best choice if you have only one day is visiting Vladimir and Suzdal towns. They are among the most visited sites within the the Golden Ring because of many picturesque white-stone medieval structures and architecture, along with later buildings from the 16th–20th centuries.
• White-stone medieval architecture of 12th century
• Museum of wooden architecture
• Delicious local food (and drinks)
• Very local life of the Russian countryside
Soviet van is not available from 25 Sept to 3 Oct!
