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.

Suzdal is a town of about 11,000 people. However, it was once the center of a thriving principality and pre-dates the founding of Moscow. It is filled with historic churches, a Bishop's palace and other structures of historic significance. At the heart of this beautiful town is its Kremlin. Most Americans associate the word "Kremlin" with Moscow and rightly so.... More

there are good expositions of the russian history (small but informative), it tells a lot about russian history from X century and till modern days, in general it is well-maintained and gives the feeling of how it was many years ago - Kremlin was in principle a fortress with the Church, square and sometimes noble houses inside, and the peasant...

This is a very serene place and a place where one can imagine Russian philosophers contemplating life, universe and everything. The Kremlin is located on a bend of the Kamenka river and there is also a moat on one side. The Suzdal Kremlin dates from the 10th century. Within the walls of the Kremlin is the Cathedral of the Nativity.... More

We visited in September, it was not crowded. We stayed in a lovely guesthouse, and easily walked to the Kremlin. Earthen walls instead of mortar and stone. We walked over them, and had a lovely view. Don't miss it, it feels more like the "real" Russia, instead of a tourist attraction!
