General information about TV production in Pereslavl Zalesskiy

Located on the banks of the Pleshcheyevo lake (140km northeast from Moscow, 600km southeast from Saint-Petersburg), it is one of the cities of the so called Golden Ring.

The history of this place counts back almost nine hundred years. Six monasteries and several large churches, remarkable monuments of ancient Russian architecture among them, are part of the medieval heritage, as well as a small XII c. Kremlin surrounded by an earthwork rampart: the walls of the fortress were dismantled in the XVIII c., but the ramparts are still standing. The hills offer a view over the former Kremlin’s center, the Cathedral of the Transfiguration of the Saviour. The Cathedral of the Transfiguration is one of the nine oldest white-stone temples in Russia with one dome. And certainly it’s the best looking one.
