Vologda Kremlin, Vologda

4.7
Climb the bell tower and explore three centuries of architecture in the archbishops' courtyard of Vologda Kremlin. Capture a panoramic view of the city from the chapel, and walk around the steward's house and the bishop's chambers, named after Archbishop Simon, under whom it was constructed in 1669. Wander through the Baroque Joseph block, constructed from 1764-1769. Even though the area has never been under attack, the surrounding high walls with their loopholes and covered transitions inside are reminiscent of a fortress, designed symbolically to indicate that the strong walls represent the ideological glorification of the church and the bishops. Wear comfortable shoes to walk around, and note that when you are climbing the bell tower, you can often feel it sway in the wind. Put Vologda Kremlin into our Vologda holiday maker tool and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • In any city I poseshhjonnom I will climb the Bell Tower/skyscraper/minaret that overlooked the city from a height. The same thing I did in Rome. Just want to note-Vologda was the only place where at the foot of the Bell Tower is not only cash and souvenir shop. but also luggage storage where you can leave your belongings and don't drag them on the Massada see.

  • This historical and architectural ensemble in the center of Vologda, originally a fortress, played the role of the defense of the city. The beautiful heart of the city, is open to visit ever.

  • It's not exactly the Kremlin, however, there's a lot to see here. Zest is Hagia Sophia, but consider the shrine a summer and winter it is closed. Territory of the complex is open at any time.
