Suzdal' Travel Guide: 130 reviews and 359 photos
Fabulously ancient and wonderfully adorned, the town of Suzdal occupies a special place among the other Russian towns. The entire town is a museum where over one hundred monuments, dating from different periods, are clustered. Suzdal meets its guests with obelisks of the Vladimir Gate (late 18th century). Right from here begins the main street of the town which, stretching throughout Suzdal, ends at the opposite gate, the Yaroslavl one. Alongside the roadway to the center you will first pass many small dwelling houses, most of them with carved window surrounds, as well as orchards and vegetable gardens behind timber fences. And then you will see the first points of historical and architectural interest
Suzdal is one of the oldest Russian cities. The first mention of it in the annals was in 1024. Russain craftsmen built this city very cosy and convinient to live in. Suzdal stands along the banks of the Kamenka river which was navigable 300-400 years ago. Suzdal captivates visitors by the treasures of its ancient culture. The Archbishop's Palace houses a number of expositions. One of them is devoted to Suzdal's history, another represents a collection of ancient icons. The oldest among them is Maximov's Mother of God dating back to 1299. There is a 13th century Cathedral of the Nativity in Suzdal. Its Golden Gates is a genuine masterpiece of early russian art. The distance from Moscow to Vladimir, a regional centre of the Russian Federation, is 172 kilometres, from Vladimir to Suzdal - 38 kilometres.
