During city tour you'll also visit the Dmitrievsky Cathedral and the Uspensky Cathedral. They were founded in th 12th century and resisted Tatar- Mongol invasion. Inside of it you'll see the walls covered with frescoes of great Russian icon-painters.
After lunch, tour in Sudzal. Suzdal is known as a city-museum, the reserve of old architecture. This illusion comes from concentration of monuments - on the territory of 2 square kilometers there are nearly 70 monuments. Suzdal is one of the few cities in Russia which don't have any industry and railroad. It's a very calm and tranquil city.
