Uglich Kremlin, Uglich

4.4
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.

  • Of course, a visit to the Kremlin and the purpose of the trip was in Uglich. Very beautiful! You can take a tour, but I was preparing for the trip and, in our case, treated their own) bought the tickets and examined everything myself.

  • The first place that you should visit upon arrival in Uglich. Here killed Tsarevich Dmitry. This place exudes history. Even if you do not want to go to exhibitions and tours, you can stroll through the territory, from the splendid view on the Volga River! Recommend a tour (1350 p per group) with a single ticket (350 g), you will be told about the tragedy of the Tsarist times and not only. One visit of Dmitry Church on the blood which is worth. Bring your cameras and forward!

  • The Kremlin in a commanding position on the river Volga is the ancient Citadel of Uglich where are the remains of stone walls.

  • No "Kremlin" in Uglich does not exist. It's just the name of the two churches and houses. The name strictly conditional. Chamber really original, though there were many times rebuilt and modified externally. Generally, in General in Uglich watch nothing. The city suffered heavily during the moth, and restructuring. All objects (which is not much) in a terrible condition and the city as a whole. Extremely depressing place. A little view of the Volga River and embankment rescues. In the rest of the darkness ...

  • As such, the Kremlin in our normal understanding. this complex of buildings on the banks of the Volga. Beautiful views, old historic site. A lot of excursions, sometimes it is hard to get to the right place. There are even crosses for children that cannot fail to delight.

  • Very nice, was here and in 2012 and 2013 and 2016 year. At the entrance to the Kremlin, a large area with machines for children. Volga go big and beautiful passenger ships. The territory clean, well-groomed. Guides can tell many interesting things which is not in the books
