Day 126 Nizhny Novgorod-Suzdal 222/ 38.607 km
From Vladimir it is only some 40 km to the village of Suzdal. This town still has a bit of a medieval feeling to it. The sun was shining and we had a lovely stroll through the tourist stalls in front of the old trading arches before we entered the walled enclosure of the Kremlin which again was built on the banks of a (small) river. The old Nativity of Virgin Cathedral (1220) has lovely blue/golden stared onion shaped domes. Inside there are 2 old brass doors with very detailed engravings. The bell tower and Archbishop’s chambers house a museum which includes the only surviving mid winter baptism tent. This wooden tent was raised over a cross cut into the ice into which people submerged for their baptism.
You notice that we are moving closed to Moscow (200 km) not only are there busloads of tourists but there is also a official camp site with showers and Wi-Fi at which we are staying.
