The very best of Russia

No Russian travel experience is complete without a visit to the Golden Ring. A culturally rich collection of towns northeast of Moscow forms the Golden Ring, creating an alluring step into a Russia of the past. Most of our itineraries feature a visit to the Golden Circle, with bilingual tour guides, luxury accommodation, and opportunities to gain an appreciation for Russia's monumental past

The Golden Ring – Charm, Splendor and History

Visiting the cities of the Golden Ring is like travelling back in time. The ring-like arrangement of the towns explains its namesake; and provides an easy-to-travel route. What makes the Golden Ring so unique is the authenticity of medieval Russia, preserved in every building. Churches, cathedrals, museums and monuments have remained virtually untouched for centuries, and demonstrate the Russia that thrived before the Soviet era, on a scale that doesn't exist anywhere else. The Golden Circle doesn't include any official list of towns, or the list of Golden Ring towns vary from year to year and indeed it is confusing to know the best route and must-see locations for your Russian holidays 2022. Our comprehensive tour packages take away the hassle of planning an itinerary. Our top-notch tour guides have curated the perfect tour of must-see spots in the Golden Ring; all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the journey.

Some of our top picks include:

➤ Sergiev Posad: A perfect example of Russia's Orthodox roots. The blue and gold spires of Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius lies at the center of Russian Orthodox spirituality and has had pilgrims paying homage to its namesake here since the 1300s.

➤ Suzdal: The pinnacle of the Golden Ring, and the highlight for many Russian trips. The very soul of Russia is alive in the towering blue spires of the Suzdal Kremlin. The picturesque backdrop complete with country lanes, a meandering river and ancient architecture will make you forget all your 21st-century worries. Our day tours of Suzdal also include a local crafts masterclass and a traditional feast including pirozhki (fried buns) and "medovukha" (Russia's national drink; honey-based mead)

➤ Veliky Novgorod: As Russia's first-ever capital city, Veliky Novgorod was critical in shaping Russia's proud history. It's unmatched in its medieval spirit and grandeur, and home to Russia's oldest Kremlin founded circa 1044 by Prince Yaroslav.

➤ Vladimir: Home to many UNESCO World-Heritage monuments, Vladimir is a highly celebrated cultural attraction. Vladimir's prospered in the 12th century, and the power it held then is still evident by the architectural monuments scattered throughout the town, reminiscent of its glory days.
