26 June. Suzdal has managed to preserve almost the entire millennial history of the city, which was first a dense forest, and then the capital of a princedom.
A small area contains about 200 monuments of architecture: from the pre-Mongolian temple of the XII century to the newest fire department construction, rebuilt according to the museum project from a hundred years ago. Between these buildings you can find the Mzhaar necropolis of the 12th century, a great number of churches with all kinds of architectural styles, the Kremlin without the typical walls, five monasteries, shopping malls from the XIX century, and cozy masterpieces from the Wooden Architecture Museum in the open air. From the white stone walls of Christmas, medieval carved lions look down at the passersby, and a magnificent falcon sits proudly on the city’s coat of arms. Not only is Suzdal architecturally diverse and splendid, but it is also known to be a place of great festivals.
The Solstice in Zaradiye festival attracts craftsmen from different parts of Russia and foreign countries. Guests will be able to purchase unique handmade products, participate in master classes, taste organic products offered directly from farmers, learn about the traditions and customs of the ancient Slavs, take part in mystical rites, try on old traditional clothes, and take part in festive games.
At the fair there will be an exhibition of the folk groups of the city and the region. They will be able to show all their talents and skills. Do not blow the chance to plunge yourself into this festive and cheerful atmosphere!
