"Golden Ring" is the name of a 700-kilometer long bus route starting in Moscow and passing through old large and small towns, distinguished by their great historical and architectural values. Tourists are virtually immersed in Russia's history as they visit gold domed cathedrals and monasteries, dating back as far as the 12th century. The great number of unique monuments, the variety of museums, art galleries and souvenir shops is amazing. Each town has a charm of its own, giving the visitor a feel of Russian provincial life and local hospitality.
We would like to offer you a 2-day tour. Although it is a short Golden Ring bus tour, you would be able to see some of the most prominent places such as Sergiev Posad, famous for prominent painters, wood-carvers and toy-makers.
