Tour of Uglich

Calm and hospitable Uglich famous for its monuments to ancient Russian architecture that fit perfectly surrounding landscapes stands on steep bank of the Volga river. It was recorded for the first time in the Ipatievsky Chronicles and dates back to 1148 year. However local sources of information claim the city was founded by Prince Yan Pleskovitich in 937. Like most Russian ancient cities Uglich passed through many appanage princes, burnt to the ground and was restored again. But this city is mostly known for the tragic events of the end of the 16th century that changed history of Russia. Today Uglich is one of the most beautiful Volga cities.
