Vologda Kremlin, Vologda

(4.6/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • On the territory of the Kremlin I most liked the Museum. With the children of his visit very interesting. And the rest-typical Kremlin.

  • The Kremlin territory is small, more impressive from the outside the Kremlin walls, because beyond the wall passed St. Sophia Cathedral, of course he creates rich look. Unfortunately, only in summer is open access to the Cathedral, believes in very grandly. Would like to visit there and see the murals. In General, the area near the Kremlin much interesting to walk around and admire the views of the promenade. Inside the Kremlin walls cognitive nature museum and the history of the region. Like museums, interestingly enough, informative.
