Day trips from Moscow

If time permits, travelling out of Moscow will offer different experiences, particularly in the Golden Ring region.

Sergiev Posad is very easy to get to and is home to the UNESCO heritage site Troitse-Sergeiva Lavra.

Suzdal, another city on the Golden ring is another popular spot as the city has no railway station and no heavy industry. It is often likened to a museum by itself. Both cities are connected by regular and high-speed trains.
