Suzdal


Suzdal is one of the oldest Russian towns. In the 12th century, it became the capital of the principality, with Moscow being merely one of its subordinate settlements. Nowadays Suzdal is the smallest of the Russian Golden Ring towns but is a major tourist attraction. Several of its monuments are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.


Today, the town operates as an important tourist center, featuring many fine examples of old Russian architecture—most of the churches and monasteries. Although having just under ten thousand residents, Suzdal still retains a rural look with streams and meadows everywhere and chicken and livestock a common sight on the streets, some of which remain unpaved. This juxtaposition of stunning medieval architecture with its pastoral setting lends Suzdal a picturesque charm, and in the summer, artists and easels are a common sight.
