It seems that being the Government centre of tourism the plce feels more beaurocratic than romantic. Too many tourists and a long long journey. Our trip took ten hours from Moscow by coach

The Cathedral is very nice both inside and outside. The woodwork, frescos, murals & Altar is very beautiful. There is a dress code : women in dresses and tops with sleeves, men in trousers & shirts. The singing by the priests is almost ethereal. There are no musical instruments or organ - just the deep sonorous voices of the priests... More

The Kremlin in Suzdal is one of the oldest in Russia. The main feature, the Cathedral of the Nativity, with its blue starry domes looks like a castle from a fairy tale! Suzdal on the whole is a city stuck in time, no tall buildings, no traffic, just a quiet, peaceful town with lovely churches, beautiful wooden cottages and cute... More

We loved the setting and the beautiful, ancient white limestone structures. Really - this is ancient Russia and it is mystical and beautiful. We took hundreds of pictures. Wow!

Suzdal is a lovely old town. Developments since the middle ages have passed it by, with the result that it has many historical buildings, especially churches. The Kremlin is the fortress which is the original centre of the town. It has a beautiful church and some remnants of the original defensive earth wall which was crowned with a wooden palisade...

I liked the Kremlin but here I want to mention my opinion on traveling to Suzdal with kids. The town has many nice places for adults but kids can get bored with churches and cathedrals after few hours. If the town wants to attract more tourists, it has to add more activities for kids. Some of the ideas are: zip-lines,... More

Inside kremlin, there are some churches mainly used as museums. In Sobor Rozdestva Bogoroditz, you can see Russian traditional and modern life styles, a heavy wooden brilliant pavillion which was moved on to the ice during winter time for celebrating the day Jesus was baptized. It's January, the most coldest season in Russia. But they made round hole into ice... More

It was quite a small Kremlin compared to the one in Moscow. It had an open air museum of weapons that were used in WW2.
