It is quite difficult to say what town is the best within the Golden Ring.

I like Yaroslavl (it is really a city) and Suzdal/Kostroma (they are more villages actually) which is a diamond indeed.

Ярославль готовится к юбилею. Ярославль является объектом Всемирного наследия ЮНЕСКО. Древнейшее поселение на территории города обнаружено на левом берегу Волги и относится к V—III тысячелетию до н. э. (неолит).
сейчас город активно готовится к юбилею. много стройки.

I liked sergiev posad (...if you are font of monasteries;the monastery there is considered the most important in Russia)
There is also nice restaurant opposite the monastery.

Istra also is a nice quite town. There is also an other beautiful monastery/fortress very near Istra there named New Jerusalem.

I heard Suzdal is very nice and old, but I have never been there.

Suzdal is nice!

The objects which get financial support look incredible, like the Kremlin, Спасо-Евфимиев монастырь (sorry I can be wrong in English writting), Pokrov nunnery (Покровский монастырь) and the museum of the wooden Art (Музей деревянного зодчества). The landscape is impressive and made me take a lot of pictures, as I could not take my eyes off.

But the general poverty of the town depressed me :(

As I have been recently there, I can give you recommendation about hotels)

P.S. I have visited Sergiev Posad, Rostov Veliky, Vladimir, but several years ago, so my reviews maybe not so fresh))))

I have visited many Golden Ring towns and lived in Sergiev Posad for many years (still go there very often to visit my parents) and i can say that unfortunately many GR towns became just tourist places with high prices... there are less and less real churches where you can feel that indescribable pray spirit...

I lived for a year in Yaroslavl on Maximova near the center of town. An absolutely beautiful town with gorgeous churches and an old monestary on the Volga. Yaroslavl and Kostroma I believe are the two Golden Ring cities worth making a special trip to see.

If you have a week, make Yaroslavl your "base of operations", and take day trips to Kostroma, Rostov, Uglich and Suzdal. Vladimir might be a stretch.

Thanks for saying this about my country! I was in many GR towns and the city (probably the only city is Yaroslavl) and every time it was amazing for me. A year ago I went to Gorokhovets (Гороховец) and spent 5 days there. After I went back to Moscow I had fixed idea at least for a couple of months to move to Gorokhovets forever although I liked Moscow, I was happy with my job etc. Magical place!

I the guide Moscow and the Golden Ring. But I go only with Russian tourists. However it is pleasant to me to show beauty of Russian cities to foreigners.

Suzdal - a city on which streets geese go.

Су́здаль — a city to Russia, an administrative center of the Suzdal area of Vladimir region. It is located on the river Kamenke, river Nerli inflow, to 26 km to the north from Vladimir. Suzdal — a city-reserve, is included into the Golden Ring of Russia. The population — 10,9 thousand persons.

The first mention in the Novgorod code narrates about, how «въ лѣто ҂ ѕ ҃ф҃з ҃ азъ мънихъ исаакіи поставленъ попомъ въ сѹжъдали въ цръкъв ѣ свѧтаго александра арменина» («In 6507 [that is 999] to year I, monk Isaaky, became the celibate priest in Suzdal, in St. Alexander Armjanina's church»).
In the beginning of XII century at Jurii Dolgorukom was the center of the Rostovo-Suzdal princedom.
In 1157 Andrey Bogolyubsky has transferred capital in Vladimir and the princedom began to be called as Vladimiro-Suzdal.
From the middle of XIII century — capital of an independent Suzdal princedom.

In territory of Suzdal there are museum objects of the Vladimiro-Suzdal istoriko-art and architectural memorial estate
The Kremlin
Spaso-Evfimiev a monastery
Museum of wooden architecture
The Posadsky house
Mandative log hut of the Pokrovsk monastery
In Nikolsky church the workshop of priest Andrey Davidov works иконописная, the wax museum operates

I've visited Yaroslavl and Rostov. Both were beautiful. Rosotov had more of a tourist town feel, while Yaroslavl was more of a city that happens to have some tourist destinations.
