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.

  • The history and fate of the Kremlin for the residents of Uglich and Russia is ambiguous, but very interesting. Excellent exposure, great guides, but also with an audioguide.

  • On the banks of the Volga River, more precisely in the Ulicheskom reservoir, approaching many cruise ships, as a tourists with the Russians and foreign tourists. On the waterfront with bread and salt meets tourists each ship girl costume! More foreigners trying to take a picture and otshhipyvajut little piece of loaf, and the Russians are trying to break off a piece, like Russian tourists go with the ship hungry! Walk along the promenade to the right and enter the market, which is very beautiful goods, painted shawls, pinafores, kokoshniki, various decorations, embroidered tablecloth-all very nice, but the prices are fantastic, they are designed for foreign tourists, but certainly not for the Russians. Our compatriots can afford kupit'tol'ko magnet on the memory of Uglich! On the left side of the market square with the monument to victory, and to the right of the market begins Uglicheskogo territory the Kremlin with many temples, churches, museums and beautiful view on the Volga River and on all cruise ships! On the territory of the Kremlin conducted all City events, documentaries and feature films, played by the Orchestra, conducted the wedding ceremony is a historic centre of Uglich-local attraction for tourists, so the Kremlin supported in decent condition! But if you go in the opposite direction from the Kremlin, then you will see the dilapidated monastery of Uglicheskij, there have not made repairs, but foreigners meticulous people, they all take off on camera and embarrassing for Russia when they post their photos and movies about historical sights of the golden ring of Russia! "shame on the Governor of the city of Uglich, though he found means to put in order the asphalt track in the city centre on which tourists go from Krel monastery! Ashamed and pity! So ran the city, why ore bring tourists, especially foreign! Find tools! Cast the city in popjadok!

  • If you are travelling alone, it makes no sense to splurge on their guide, walks with a myriad of groups. There is an opportunity to hear more.
