We include this Russian tour in Moscow day trips but you could easily spend several days here. Peter the Great chose Pereslavl-Zalessky to build the first Russian fleet. Alexander Nevskii the saviour of Novgorod was born here. Here is still standing a 12thC cathedral one of only nine pre-tartar cathedrals still standing in central Russia. Still standing are many monasteries from the 16thC, 17th and 18thC. An excellent place to find a window into Russian history and a taste of the Golden Ring. This is also an excellent place for fishing and camping on the banks of lake Plesheovo.
About 10 hours.
