Russia - Golden Ring (Chapter)
This is the Golden Ring chapter from Lonely Planet’s Russia guidebook.
The Golden Ring is textbook Russia: onion-shaped domes, kremlins and gingerbread cottages with cherry orchards. Brace for a flow of images that are quite literally iconic. Picturesque country roads invite bicycle adventures, while steam baths will clear your mind.
