Vladimir Region is no doubt the pearl of the Golden Ring. Vladimir, Suzdal, Bogolyubovo and Kideksha are among the most fascination towns of Russia. Famous for their historical and cultural heritage, these towns offer a great variety of amazingly beautiful old churches and cathedrals that keep the mark of their fabulous past. But there's more to Vladimir Region, than the famous churches and some museums that can tell you a lot about the history of old Russia: the town provides interesting insights on provincial Russian life. Another attraction of the region is that some of the towns are really little more than villages, providing a peaceful glimpse of country life as it is lived all over European Russia. The best known is little Suzdal, officially protected against urbanization and industrial development, with so many protected buildings that it’s almost one big museum. The trip to the very heart of European Russia will certainly become the highlight of your stay in the country.
