Vologda Kremlin, Vologda

4.6
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.

  • Here will be interesting and a walk, and see kraevedecheskij Museum inside. There are also several old churches for lovers of orthodoxy. Many of the buildings on 400-500 for years, so it will be interesting for you:) immediately there are good gift shops-as edible or not, with the largest selection in town, it seemed to me.

  • To come to the city and not visit the Kremlin is certainly not seriously. But something Grand in it I did not find. Perhaps this is due to its partial reconstruction. May-winter-it's not kremljovskoe time: neither flowers nor the Greens. In the Kremlin there are a number of exhibits, all at reasonable prices. But they work exclusively to 17.00.

  • The Cathedral of Saint Sophia in the Woods in winter is closed. But even what we saw in the US has made a very good impression. And a very good Museum. Awesome collection of icons. And wonderful women's outfits
