Gold ring of Russia

Almost any person living not only in Russia, but also abroad, probably heard about the Golden Ring of Russian cities. But, in reality, only a few can tell exactly which cities are included in the Golden Ring and for what merits they got there.

The Golden Ring of Russia is a tourist route that links together the oldest Russian cities, which are the cultural and historical heritage of our country, craft centers, and keepers of unique monuments. Eight cities – Vladimir, Suzdal, Sergiev Posad, Rostov the Great, Pereslavl-Zalessky, Ivanovo, Kostroma and Yaroslavl occupy an honorable place in the Golden Ring. The journey runs through six areas: Moscow, Kostroma, Vladimir, Ivanovo, Yaroslavl and Tver.

It should be noted that discussions do not stop about the place in the Golden Ring of Russia of such cities as Alexandrov, Gorokhovets, Bogolyubovo, Gus-Khrustalny, Murom, Moscow, Kalyazin, Kideksha, Ples, Palekh, Rybinsk, Tutaev, Uglich, Yuryev-Polsky. Their historical and cultural heritage is undeniable. Therefore, many travel companies include them in the main part of the tour.

The tourist route “Golden Ring of Russia” was organized more than 30 years ago. The term itself appeared in 1967 (author Yuri Bychkov).

Traveling in Russia is unthinkable without a trip along this route. The Assumption Cathedral, the frescoes of which were created by Andrei Rublev himself, the Church of the Intercession on the Nerl in Vladimir, the extraordinary beauty of the Kremlin of Suzdal and Rostov, the monastery ensembles of Yaroslavl and Kostroma – this is only a small fraction of all the masterpieces of architecture of Ancient Russia.

“Russian Vatican” – Sergiev Posad attracts tourists with its religious history. The main attraction of all of Russia is the Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius. It was the emergence of the Trinity Monastery that gave impetus to the formation of the city of Sergiev Posad, which attracted and continues to attract faithful Christians from all over Russia.

Pereslavl-Zalessky – another city of the Golden Ring, also remains a protected place, even though it is now a large industrial city. It attracts with its calm, comfort, measured and leisurely life. Four existing monasteries (Goritsky Assumption, Trinity Danilov, Fedorovsky, Nikitsky), created back in the XIV-XVII centuries, will help to escape from the bustle of the city and enjoy the beauty of these places.

The monuments of the city of Ivanovo are slightly less known, in comparison with other cities of the Golden Ring. But there are many architectural ensembles of various eras. Ivanovo was and remains the textile center of Russia. That is why it is often called the “city of brides” or “Russian Manchester”.

The cities of the Golden Ring of Russia represent a completely different world, devoid of metropolitan bustle, characterized by a calm measured life and silence. Traveling in Russia will be deprived of special warmth if you do not visit the Golden Ring.
