Despite being close to the tourist centres of Vladimir and Suzdal, the city of Yuriev-Polsky is somewhat off the beaten track. However the city boasts an earthen mound on which a kremlin once stood, a stunning monastery and a 13th-century cathedral decorated with intricate engravings. It is easiest to visit the city by bus from Vladimir.
