- On a bicycle around the
Golden Ring. A chain of old cities and villages
north-east of Moscow is hardly circular, but it is "Golden"
in the sense that it is rich in historical places and towns
that are museums in themselves. This areas is going through
it's second birth: long neglected monasteries and convents
are being reopened to their former beauty and elegance.
