Winter scenes in Suzdal

Winter scenes in Suzdal

There are dozens of beautiful churches and amazing landscapes in Suzdal. Old churhes and extremely picturesque landscapes attract big amount of travellers to visit the one of the ancient cities in Russia. In 1983 Suzdal has got the "The Golden Apple" prize of the International Travel Commentators Association as the most notable tourist place.

Here is a few crhronicles of this famous town in Russia:
Like all ancient Russian cities, the history of Suzdal is both beautiful and terrible. In 1096, the city was burned down during a civil war. Eleven years later, it was sieged by Bulgarians from Volga area, who devastated the region. In 1238, like many Russian cities, it was conquered, burned down, and brought to ruin by the Mongol-Tatar tribes led by the grandson of Genghis Khan. In 1611, after a half-year siege, Suzdal was destroyed by Polish-Lithuanian interventionists, but 23 years later, under the leadership of Dimitri Pozharsky, it survived an attack of Crimean Tatars. A plague wiped out half of the population in 1654, and a great fire destroyed much of the city in 1719.

A lifelong dream came true to visit Russia and the perfect guide came along with it. Arthur is the “Russian Guru of Drivers-Guide” for everyone looking or considering a guide please also, reference Steve Killian’s post on 2006-12-20. Steve’s post is on spot. Arthur is still on point after 8 years. Like Steve, I was solo on my visit with no worries with Arthur at the wheel. Pick up from DME several tours in 7 seven days and I was directed in the correct line for my return flight. I experienced Moscow through the eyes of a true Muscovite, who loves his city, country and wants you to experience the true Moscow. Arthur thanks for the experience of life time. During our visit to Sergius Lavra (Russia’s Vatican City) services I felt the presents of God in this historical church. Arthur thanks for sharing with me the Art, History, Religion (Churches were awesome), Cultural Centers, Markets, Culinary and photography it was all amazing. Also, visiting Russia in the winter you don’t have to deal with the crowd’s. Moscow was lit up like a Christmas Winter Wonderland. In every park there was a theme and several streets were closed to traffic for venders in the center of the city on the weekends. Arthur thanks for everything. If you are reading this post and trying to decide to use Arthur “just do it”.
