While staying in the city of Ivanovo, Russia (the city of brides), with my grandmother and mother, it was time for an adventure.

 

Where is Suzdal, Russia?

The Ancient Russian City of Suzdal

From 1024 to 1125, Suzdal was the first capital of Russia, while Moscow was still a ‘cluster of cowsheds'.

From the 16th to the 18th century, many large investments were made into the city by the royal family, and by various merchants, to build as many churches as possible.

The beauty of the town is in its reminder of an older time in Russian history, with its magnificent churches, and many wooden houses.
