The Golden Ring of Russia includes several historical towns located not far from Moscow. A classic Golden Ring tour starts in Moscow and covers Sergiev Posad, Pereslavl Zalesskiy, Rostov Velikiy, Yarsolavl, Kostroma, Suzdal and Vladimir. When you return to Moscow, you make a kind of a circle or a “Ring”. The term “Golden” is originated from the golden cupolas of Orthodox churches. Aside from multi-day tours, we have a selection of day trips from Moscow to Sergiev Posad, Vladimir and Suzdal.
