    Suzdal

    I was there last week :P ...It is probably the best looking town in the Golden Ring, with a large range of excellent historical buildings, and was recently listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. It is worth a visit, but not for a long stay unless you are really into Russian Orthodox buildings.

    The restaurants were cheap after Moscow prices, and very good quality, but the depressing site of the local young people sitting in the town square drinking beer all day indiciates this is a really boring town in which to live unless you are in the restoration trade. I stayed at the Pokrovksy Monastery, which was great, as when you wake up and look out the window you see the cathedral 20 feet away! About 80USD a night, and well worth it!

    Young people drinking in the street all day is not just a Suzdal phenomena, it is a Russia-wide sport...

    Vladimir - the place I live in - is just 30 minutes drive from Suzdal. Well actually it's Suzdal that is positioned in 30 minutes drive from Vladimir 'cause Vladimir is the center of that region (Vladimirskaya oblast, that is). So your friend probably attends the University here in Vladimir, as far as I do not know any outside of it. Anyhow if you need any other information besides given above I am ready to help you.
