Facts about Suzdal, Russia. #2

Suzdal is the smallest of the Russian Golden Ring towns with population of around 10,000, but is a major tourist attraction. Several of its monuments are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The Golden Ring of Russia is a theme route over a ring of cities northeast of Moscow. The idea of the route and the term were created in 1967 by Soviet historian and essayist Yuri Bychkov, who published in the newspaper “Sovetskaya Kultura” in November-December 1967 a series of essays on the cities under the heading “Golden Ring”.
