The tour starts in Moscow. That will give you a chance to see much of the Russian capital. But Moscow can not be considered as being purely Russian, like New York is so much different from the rest of USA. Moscow is a metropolis which has its own style and pace of life. Move fifty miles from Moscow and you will be amazed how different life can be.

The Golden Ring is formed by ancient Russian cities located to the northeast of the capital. You will have a great chance of seeing the country side and enjoy authentic Russian experience. Moscow is an official capital and Saint-Petersburg is considered to be a northern or cultural capital of Russia. It is difficult for Westerners to comprehend what an important place Moscow holds in the Russian imagination as a symbol of both spiritual and political power.

It has always been the heart of this vast country. Moscow has been the center of government ever since the Soviet power moved there in the spring of 1918. The city is more than a metropolis of over nine million people, more than the administrative, legislative, educational, and cultural capital of Russia - it is the embodiment of the Russian Character and of Russian history. Sergiev-Posad is famous for its monastery Trinity Saint Sergius Lavra (1340 A.D.).

It is a seat of the head of the Russian orthodox church. Vladimir (1108 A.D.) has a lot of ancient monuments to be proud of. The first striking monument is the Golden Gate (1164 A.D.). Assumption cathedral (1161 A.D.) is worth seeing, too. Suzdal (1024A.D.), a holy city, is in itself an entire museum - its thronging monuments, towers and domes enable the visitor to follow the history of Russian architecture from the 12th to the 19th centuries.
