In a miniature Pereslavl-Zalessky city, almost all the attractions are located in the historic center, within walking distance of each other. Wherever you go to the old city, you will not be able to pass the earthen walls-ramparts, towering around the ancient suburb of the Pereslavl Kremlin - for more than eight and a half centuries. The fortifications are well preserved and represent a monument of serf architecture of the early period, which is rare in this part of Russia.
Most churches and monasteries of Pereslavl belong to the XVI-XVIII centuries, and urban buildings - to the XVIII-XIX centuries. Wooden and stone buildings cannot be called architectural masterpieces but they are associated with the history of the city and are worth to be seen.
From Moscow to Pereslavl-Zalessky can be reached in two hours along the M-8 “Kholmogory” highway. The road network connects the city with other points of the Golden Ring route.
