There are classic and extended routes around the Golden Ring. Depending on the programs of tour operators, they can include neighboring cities - by the way, no less remarkable in terms of landscapes, traditions and culture, such as Kalyazin, Murom, Plyos, Rybinsk, Uglich, Gus-Khurstalny, Palekh, Alexandrov and so on. In spirit these settlements fully fit into the Golden Ring —  cozy towns crowned with domes,  Central Russian landscapes of the neighborhood and magnificent examples of applied art - take at least Gusev's crystal or Palekh miniature lacquer.

Golden Ring Routes

In addition to the above-mentioned classic routes, the extended one with a trip through the Yaroslavl region, visiting Uglich, Myshkin, Rybinsk and Tutaev,  is very popular. Its length is about 1000 km.
 
It is also possible to  travel around the Golden Ring radially: for example, from Rostov Veliky - to Borisoglebsky Monastery, from Yaroslavl - to Tutaev, from Kostroma - to Plyos and Shchelykovo, from Ivanovo - to Shuya and places of folk handicrafts like Palekh, Kholui and Mstera. Most often, such mini-programs include visits to only 4-7 cities.
 
According to the duration of the trip, they can last  2-3 days (weekend tours), and   9-10 days required for exploring the main cities. The most popular options are from 2 to 5 days, although there are many people who want to embrace the immensity, especially in summer.
 
Transportation

The most convenient way to explore the Golden Ring is to book an organized excursion. 

Travelers on their own should travel by car or intercity buses. The railway is more suitable for individual visits to the cities of the Golden Ring, since it connects only regional centers (which is convenient, say, for Yaroslavl or Vladimir). 


Not all the cities of the Golden Ring are located on navigable rivers, but most of them can be visited by motor ships during river cruises

Some cruise routes to the cities of the Golden Ring:
  • Moscow - Uglich - Myshkin - Kostroma - Plyos - Yaroslavl - Tutaev - Rybinsk - Kalyazin - Sosenki - Moscow. The duration of the route is 7 days.
  • Moscow - Uglich - Yaroslavl - Kostroma - Myshkin - Moscow. Duration - 5 days.
  • Moscow - Sosenki - Kalyazin - Rybinsk - Yaroslavl - Myshkin - Moscow. Duration - 5 days.
  • Moscow - Konstantinovo - Kasimov - Ryazan - Kolomna - Moscow. Duration  - 7 days.

The cost of the cruise varies greatly depending on the chosen route and the ship, as well as the type of cabin. In addition to the above, there are many other routes to explore the Golden Ring of Russia.
