Suzdal Kremlin is the oldest building of the city. Its area is of 14 hectares. It after the Kremlin was built that Suzdal emerged. The Kremlin is located on the bank of the Kamenka River and is surrounded by ramparts preserved to this day. Initially along the Kremlin rampart there was a wooden wall with towers burned in the 18th century.  

On the territory of the Suzdal Kremlin the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Virgin is located. It was built in the 1220s. It was originally planned as the burial place for prince family and senior church leaders. The main part of the burials was made in the 16-17 centuries. Inside the cathedral are preserved murals and frescoes of the 13-19 centuries, beautiful iconostasis of the 17th century, various church utensils. The cathedral has also preserved the "golden gate" of the 13th century, decorated in the "fire gilding on copper"style.

Next to the Cathedral of the Nativity are Archbishop's Chambers built by Suzdal spiritual masters. They were built step by step, for over 200 years, from the 15th to the 17th century. The chambers have a passage to the bell tower of the 17th century, which has the rare existing astronomical clock with Old Slavonic numerals. Currently exhibits of the Vladimir-Suzdal museum are shown in the Archbishop Chambers.  

The Suzdal Kremlin is one of the most beautiful places in the city.
