Now the district capital of the Yaroslavl region, this major religious centre of Old Russia contains four monasteries that are once again active! The fifth has been a Museum of History and Art since 1919. Full of old-fashioned charm, the town of Pereslavl-Zalessky boasts Lake Pleshcheyevo nature park as a backdrop, affording a bucolic stopover where you will discover the desolate state of the buildings returned to the Church, the ambitious restoration programme already underway, and the magnitude of what remains to be done.
