    08:00 Departure by bus to Maria Koval's private cheese farm, located on the territory of the Pleshcheyevo Lake Nature Reserve, near the city of Pereslavl-Zalessky.

    The cheese factory appeared in Pereslavl-Zalessky not by chance at all. In tsarist times, Yaroslavl province was the main cheese region of the country. In the 19th century, more than 300 artisan cheese factories operated here and even a special breed of cows was bred for cheese making!

    Cheeses are prepared here artistically from cow's and goat's milk according to their own author's recipes based on Italian, Dutch, and French technologies. 

    The cheeses here are brewed exclusively from natural milk, made by hand and ripened in special rooms. Chevrotella and Chevron, Mozzarella and Ricotta, Levarden and Drunken Goat in a wine crust, black and yellow, white and red, with Provencal herbs and fenugreek seeds, Gouda and Roquefort... What is not here!

    You will have the opportunity to taste 9 different types of cheeses!

    And in the "branded" store at the cheese factory you can buy your favorite cheeses and dairy products.

    Sightseeing tour of Pereslavl-Zalessky – the birthplace of Alexander Nevsky and the cradle of the Russian navy.

    The heart of Pereslavl is Red Square. Those who, upon learning about this, exclaim: "As in Moscow!" will only be mistaken in the direction. This is the main square in Moscow for several centuries later received its name in imitation of Pereslavskaya! 

    A living confirmation of the local antiquity is the Transfiguration Cathedral, founded by Yuri Dolgoruky in 1152. This is the oldest building in Northeastern Russia that has survived to the present day.

    The main historical landmark of the city is the Transfiguration Cathedral, founded in 1152 by Yuri Dolgoruky. 

    The cathedral is the only one of the first five white stone temples of Northeastern Russia that has come down to us almost completely intact. 

    Many Pereslavl princes were baptized in the cathedral, including Alexander Nevsky, who was born and reigned here. Grateful descendants built the most beautiful Alexander Nevsky Church in honor of the amazing national hero prince and erected a majestic monument that you will definitely see.

    Lunch at a cafe in the city.

    Excursion to the Rostov Kremlin. Surrounded by powerful walls with towers, outwardly it really resembles the Kremlin, an ancient Russian princely fortress, but in reality for a long time it was the Bishop's court – the residence of Rostov bishops and metropolitans. the residence of the Rostov bishops and metropolitans. 

    The Kremlin is decorated with the Assumption Cathedral (XVI century) with a unique belfry, on which a set of 15 bells, the Bishop's Yard, and Cathedral Square have been completely preserved.
