Uglich Kremlin, Uglich
(4.2/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Tour the Prince's chambers, the Church of Tsarevich Dmitry on Blood, Spaso-Preobrazhenskiy Cathedral, the Bogoyavlenskiy winter cathedral, and the house of the city administrator on your visit to Uglich Kremlin. The Prince's chambers--all that remains of a larger palace built in 1481--is the oldest part of the complex, followed by the Church of Tsarevich Dmitry on Blood, constructed beginning in 1677 on the site of the tragic death of Ivan the Terrible's youngest son. Dmitry's murder remains a mystery; look for the mural paintings in the church that depict the events of that fateful night, starting from when Dmitry went on his walk, and concluding with the civil commotion that resulted from his death. In the Spaso-Preobrazhenskiy Cathedral, note the interior's arched curves, marble columns, and central composition referring to the famous Transfiguration by Raphael. As you walk around the complex, enjoy learning about the different periods of Russian history and culture reflected in the construction and decoration of its buildings. Note that many of the buildings are not wheelchair accessible and that some have entrance and photography fees.

  • I arrived in Uglich in Tuesday, especially early and was able to see only the facades of the buildings of the Kremlin. The entrance doors to all buildings hung with impressive ambarnye castles without ads and explanations. Quite accidentally found out that Tuesday is a holiday in the winter (anywhere that information previously not met). A scheduled examination of expositions. For this reason, my score-"bad" organization. Ladies from the Administration the situation was not thrilled: well, not hit today-tomorrow come; planned to leave in the morning? your problems. Where it says about output? Yes anywhere. In the Kremlin, you must be careful with any movement of the pigeons, they take over the intention of their feed and fly a huge bunch, climb in the face. The Spaso-preobrazhenskiy Cathedral is available for a small donation to get a key from a free-standing Bell Tower and climb the tier with the belfry. Neater on tiers with wood floors: boards is rotten and partly failed, follow the steps to the stairs along the shortest route. Every half hour the bells makes sound tower clock mechanism located even higher; It's worth watching. The Cathedral is not owned by the museum complex, therefore, is open seven days a week.

  • Visit required! A great place to explore the history of the city of Uglich. The territory is small, but directly feel the penetration during the reign of Ivan the terrible. Place the ancient, beautiful views. We even dressed in the costumes of the King and Queen for beautiful pictures. Guide to listen to! Tell interesting, with soul. Now little history is taught to children, and here you are in the history of the Russian State. Be sure to visit the singing in the temple (acts group of singers with the amazing votes). Listen to soul flies, divine beauty. Visit the Kremlin it is necessary! We have more than 10 times were in Uglich (every year swim in a river cruise) and still come here to recharge the spiritual energy.
