Ancient And Wonderful Suzdal

Posted on June 10, 2011 by kulichik


Suzdal is a town in the Vladimir Region, Russia, situated north-east of Moscow, 26 kilometers from the city of Vladimir, on the Kamenka River.

For centuries it functioned as the capital of several Russian principalities. It forms part of the Golden Ring. The place is abundant with settlements of old Russian type and local houses shouldn’t have more than 2 storeys.
