City of Craftsmen in Gorodets
On private Gorodets tours you will find yourself immersed in the cheery, picturesque streets of one of the oldest towns in all of Russia. Saturated with small-town charm and ideally situated along the banks of the Volga River, Gorodets is perhaps best known for its high-quality wooden handicrafts which are often painted in a resplendent array of colors. Anyone in search of the perfect Russian souvenirs need look no further!
While the town is the perfect place to find respite from the hectic pace of life, it also offers notable landmarks that you won’t want to miss, including unique fortifications situated along the river and the onion-domed Feodorovsky Monastery. Gorodets’ delightful interactive museums highlight Russian artefacts and handiwork and include workshops, presentations and even edible arrangements.
