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!

This complex is not ordinar kremlin (compare to Moskva kremlin for expample). Ground walls are still presents only in some places. That is why some people think that kremlin is Spaso-Evfimiev monastery. But this is the real heart of the town. Now there are nomerous of old style museums with static exposition. If you have some interest in history or... More

Suzdal with its Kremlin and other numerous churches is a great place to rest after busy Moscow. The place is very calm although it is popular among the tourists. Much money has been recently invested in restoration and refurbishment. Would recommend to go by train to Vladimir and then take a taxi, cost approximately 500 roubles and the taxis are... More
