Tourism in Russia > Golden Ring of Russia

Golden Ring of Russia

The most popular t ourist routes in Russia are the cruises along the Volga and the journeys along the Golden Ring. We have a unique opportunity to combine both. Each of, the towns of the Golden Ring has preserved the amazing atmosphere of old-time. You will feel it walking the homey streets, admiring the picturesque outlines of the churches against the gardens and parks. The appearance of mighty walls of the medieval fortresses on the river-banks makes an especial impression.

The first city we pass through is Kalyazin. Surely you have noticed from afar the elegant bell-tower rising straight out of the water. It is the only remembrance of the former majesty and glorious architecture of the city. Still there are several preserved streets, three churches, monastic islands and the bell-tower of the Nikolaevsky Cathedral.

The Volga makes a sharp sweep, and the delightful view of Uglich, the city with a history of more than a thousand years, greets us.

A majestic white-stone building in the midst of the dense greenery is a Spaso-Preobrazhensky Cathedral; the splendid Church of the John Precursors Nativity is seen, and near there are purpling foresides of the Prince Dmitry-On-blood Church crowned by the blue domes with golden stars. This is the most famous cathedral of Uglich. According to the legend, exactly here in 16th century the historic drama took place when the inheritor of Ivan the Terrible, the little prince Dmitry, was killed.

In the city we will see the Assumption Church. For its beauty it is called Divnaya (Delightful).We will visit the Voskresensky Monastery as well. In the Way of Life Museum its possible to get acquaintance with everydays life of the citizens of the 19th - beginning of the 20th centuries. Among the unusual museums there is the Museum of History of Russian Vodka. Beside an interesting exposition there is a tasting room where you may buy genuine Russian vodka of the best Russian trademarks.
