The Forgotten City of Russia: Suzdal

Trapped in the nineteenth century, Suzdal, is a small town on the outskirts of Moscow, Russia. In the late 1800s the railroad became an important factor in modernization and a definition of moving into the twentieth century. Cities that did not have the grace of having the train pass through essentially became forgotten. Those that did, saw the city grow and prosper as it was opened up to trade and travel. This small town of Suzdal, unfortunately did not convince the government in 1864 to have the would-be Trans-Siberian Railway pass through. And so this town never modernized and was left behind in the nineteenth century.
