The Golden Ring of Russia: Aleksandrov - Sergiev Posad (New)

Aleksandrov Golden Ring RussiaDay 1. Moscow - Aleksandrov - Sergiev Posad (Zagorsk)

07.00am Meeting with a guide and driver at the hotel lobby (the guide will be holding the sign Russia Travel Group). Departure for Aleksandrov.

09.30-10.00am Arrival in Aleksandrov.

Tour of Aleksandrov. The kremlin was constructed by the same builders of the Kremlin in Moscow by Vasily III. It served as a residence for the tsar and his court, and Alexandrov once was a capital of the burgeoning state over which he ruled. The Pokrovsky (Intercession of the Virgin) cathedral was sanctified in 1513 and later it was blessed anew as the Trinity (Troitsky) Cathedral. Its appearance has changed somewhat since the 16th century; some of the architectural details such as windows, e.g., belong to a later period. Originally, red brick and white stone were used in the outer decoration of the cathedral but brick parts were later painted over. Some of the interior frescos paintings date back to the 14th century as do the white stone carvings in the interior portals.
