Suzdal is a very small town. People live peacefully in their sympathic wooden cottages. Many of the houses are new, recently painted blue and white and green. People of suzdal are called cucumber millionaires because they earn their livelihood by crowing cucumbers and other vegatables.


The town is fabulously rich in the unique architectural monuments of the 13th-18th centuries including ancient cathedrals and monasteries, bell-towers and churches, one and two-story wooden and brick buildings. The Kremlin, the Monastery of the Deposition of the Holy Robe, the Nativity Cathedral and the Intercession Cathedral are the most popular places of interest. Suzdal is truly a town-museum distinguished for its fidelity to ancient traditions.
