Uglich is a small town in the Yaroslavl region and tourists mainly visit it during their Golden Ring trips. Being a tiny settlement of only 32.000 people's population, it used to be an important historical center in 13-14 centuries, when Russian small princes made it their residence. Today it is cultural conservation: the examples of Russian medieval architecture are treasured by the local community. These architectural gems include two monasteries, Alexeevskiy and Resurrection and the Assumption church. There is also a traditional Kremlin that remained almost the same it was in times of ancient Rus and several other interesting churches that are worth seeing if you want to get a closer look to Russian traditional architecture and the history of Christianity.
