Golden Ring in fall

Last fall. Golden Ring tour. Quite unexpectedly we decided to take this 5-day tour. Fabulous experience. Start from Moscow,
next stop - Sergiyev Posad. The weather was atrocious. Icy wind, temperature around 5°C, intermittent drizzle - brrr.

Can't say I've ever heard of The Golden Ring? The churches; their decorations and frescoes are just sublime; magical,in fact!

wow! splendid...these Orthodox churches and cathedrals with their unique external architectural designs highlighted with gilded garlic-shaped spires and the equally splendid array of gilded altars, icons and myriad paintings of saints are absolutely the no. one tourists drawers - real priceless gems.

Love the reflection of the tree in the puddle; the dog on the ground; and those churches are just amazing.
