Uglich Kremlin, Uglich

(4.2/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • For those who make River travel from St Petersburg to Moscow, the stop in this town is at least required. The Kremlin offers the curiosity of the visitors, two beautiful churches, the former residence of the last son of Ivan the terrible and a small museum where you can hear a good choir accompanied by typical instruments of the country. The city is not rich and appears to be starting to rise thanks to tourism. Relatively near the Kremlin there are countless churches, some in the process of restoration. Near the pier there is a craft fair with the usual, if you want to buy craft good (but expensive) opts for the sale in a tower adjacent to the Cathedral of the Transfiguration. If you take a tour of the town can still find a town still genuine, without addictions of turistificação.

  • The city of Uglich is easily accessible from Rostov Veliky on right track in one hour: you have to go there for a variety of its attractions. In a dominant position on the Volga, here there is absolutely majestic, the Kremlin, without walls, oak and other neighboring Rostov. Various constructions, bricks with white décor features the Palace and the Church from the beautiful frescoed Interior, another Church chromatically different but quite up with its majestic Bell Tower isolated.
