    To be honest, the best on this trip (Moscow, Vladimir and suzdal). Vladimir from 20-30 minutes by bus. Show photo guide and bus stop, go here, and told the passengers in the bus (also would get the words, you can talk to without worrying about). Slowly walking from the bus stop is 30 minutes. Go in a mood of grasslands on the way one is very beautiful, such as hiking, and in fact smaller church you will see. Small lake is located beside the Church of the portrait made of white stone, as if I was impressed by the picturesque views. Charm of this church is the surrounding landscape should form the basis of what I think. We have many visitors slowly enjoying the scenery, taking pictures.

    A beautifully preserved historical heritage of the city, which will certainly need to see! This church is situated in a magnificent and beautiful place! Go to it should be through the field, but it's worth it. Outside the Church seems solid and spacious, but it's because of the thick walls, is actually inside very little place. and close by the river. In the summertime, proposes to commit on her tour by boat.

    A place of incredible beauty. Inside we don't hit, as have come to this place only about 9 pm. Nature unusually beautiful. Such vastness. 157 HA, if I am not mistaken. But you will have to walk or ride on a carriage. Distance about 1 km to overcome easily, so it is better to walk on foot) Sat there every night, quietly, so quietly.
