Golden Ring is a set of ancient Russian cities north-east of Moscow which form a circle if you look at them on the map. In this video I would like to tell you about the golden Ring of Russia. I think that many of you have heard this name, but not many people know what it means. And some practical info for tourists:)

Golden Ring is a set of ancient Russian cities north-east of Moscow which form a circle if you look at them on the map. The author of the term "Golden Ring" is Yuri Bychkov. He was a soviet journalist and a writer. And the idea of the circular route belongs to him. In the middle of the last century (to be more particular in 1967) he published in the newspaper "Soviet Culture" a few articles on the ancient cities under the general heading of "Golden Ring". Later this name was given to the now world-famous tourist route.
The 'classical' route starts from Moscow goes through Sergiev Posad, Pereslavl-Zalesskiy, Rostov Velikiy, Yaroslavl, Kostroma, Suzdal and Vladimir. All the cities and towns are located relatively close to each other, so from one place you can reach to another and make a circle. So you start from Moscow and come back to Moscow.
Moscow and St Petersburg are, of course, the main attractions in Russia, but if you really want to see a true Russian life and how the most of country lives, make an effort to travel to at least couple of the cities in the Golden Ring. You can see old architecture and churches which were built prior to Mongol rule.
If you only have 1 day off, then I suggest you go to Sergiev Posad. If you have a few free days then I would recommend you to go to Pereslavl-Zalesskiy, Vladimir, and Suzdal'
