S01:E02 - Smolensk
Located at the western border of Russia, Smolensk was the first line of defense for Russia thus guarding the route to Moscow through the centuries. "The city of Marshall glory", preserves all its victories and losses in stone walls that once encircled it.
S01:E03 - Vladimir
Situated on the Klyazma river, Vladimir, is a cluster of exquisite churches and cathedrals, including some of the oldest in Russia. The ancient capital of Russia is over 1,000 years old and preserves its legendary past.
S01:E05 - Suzdal
130 miles northeast of Moscow sits Suzdal, an ancient town frozen in time that still resembles how Peter the Great saw it. A slice of olden Russia that doesn't exist anywhere else, Suzdal preserves its past and reminds visitors of a slower, old fashioned way of life.
