Tours to Suzdal

The first written mention of Suzdal is found in the annals of 1024, but the city itself was founded much earlier. In the XII century, the center of the Rostov-Suzdal principality was located here, and then Andrei Bogolyubsky moved the capital here from Vladimir. Since then, Tatars and Poles have attacked the city, fires and epidemics have tried to destroy it, but Suzdal has always survived and remained a symbol of Russian culture and one of the most important historical cities. Tours to Suzdal can be made as part of an organized trip along the Golden Ring or go there on your own.

Church of the Intercession on the Nerl

This church, according to many world-famous architects, is the pinnacle of temple architecture in Russia. The Church of the Intercession on the Nerl is located near Suzdal. It was built by Prince Andrey Bogolyubsky in memory of his deceased son in the middle of the 12th century. Historians believe that this is the first Church of the Intercession in Russia.
The temple is located in a unique place in the center of a flood meadow, which the water of the Nerl River completely covers during the flood period. In the spring, the church appears as if in the middle of a huge mirror, which reflects its dome and white-stone walls. In the temple you can buy consecrated icons and listen to the service.
