In 1967, art historian Yuri Bychkov traveled in his "Moskvich" to the cities of the Vladimir region to write a series of articles about the journey. Having made this journey, he completed his journey in Yaroslavl, thus, as if "ringing" the trip. So the route got its name - "Golden Ring" (Sergiev Posad - Pereslavl-Zalessky - Rostov Velikiy - Yaroslavl - Kostroma - Ivanovo - Suzdal - Vladimir).
