Uglich Kremlin, Uglich

4.5
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.
