Golden Ring: the city of Uglich - the city of churches

Where to go in winter? This question I ask myself every time with its occurrence. O trip with a tent on nature, or o hiking trip out of the question.

Therefore, the most dear to me in beautiful cities, asnear Moscow, and away from her. I can’t get to Kiev and Minsk in any way, it's only a night on the train and already there ... Today we are talking about a city closer, and included in the non-core list of cities of the Golden Ring - Uglich.

The city of Uglich is a small town in the Yaroslavl region, with a population of 35 thousand people and located on the banks of the Volga. The city has been mentioned since 937.

Uglich is an ordinary provinciala town in which in the winter more than one day there is nothing to do. But this day can be very informative. It is good to include it in the program for the weekend, together with a trip, for example, to Myshkin.
