And of course, we will try "medovukha" - famous Russian soft drink based on honey. Suzdal produces the very best one!
Suzdal is said to be the reflection of the Russian soul. It is one of the most beautiful ancient small Russian towns.
Proceed to Kostroma town (190 km).
Kostroma is the furthest from Moscow (344 km) and therefore the least visited of the Golden Ring cities. It is located on the Volga River, and the high banks offer impressive views of the Volga expanses.
Time permitting we shall also visit a very unusual the Museum of Flax and Birch Bark (time permitting) which holds a unique collection of Russian fairy-tales in birch bark. You will learn about this unique Russian national product and get some truly Russian souvenirs!
Overnight at the hotel in Kostroma.
We visit the famous Museum of Wooden Architecture in Kostroma. Here in Kosrtoma region, many wooden buildings of different times survived. The decision to create a museum was caused by Gorky hydroelectric station & dam construction on the Volga. Due to the construction works, several villages were threatened with flooding. In order to identify the most valuable architectural monuments and save them from the advancing water, the Soviet Academy of Science sent as few expeditions in the 50s of the last century. As a result, many wooden structures were transported to Kostroma Sloboda in Kostroma - masterpieces of Russian architecture.
