Golden Ring

The Golden Ring is a real catch for tourists who want to get acquainted with the true Russian spirit. This famous touristic route consists of nine ancient Russian cities that keep the genuine atmosphere of the XII-XIX centuries. Most of the sights are closely related to the history of religion: there is hardly another route in Russia where you can find such a number of UNESCO-heritage-listed cathedrals and churches. The most valuable thing about the Golden ring is that its cities maintain the genuine buildings of old times and most of them remained almost the same they were in the ancient Rus period. The cities that are traditionally included in the Golden Ring route are Sergiev Posad, Pereslavl-Zalesskiy, Rostov The Great, Yaroslavl, Kostroma, Ivanovo, Suzdal, Vladimir, and Uglich.
