Weekend route. Yaroslavskaya oblast

Yaroslavl land is full of sights, only Yaroslavl itself is worth more than one weekend. Our goal is to drive along the Volga from Uglich to Tutaev and see interesting places along the road.
Photo 2. Early in the morning we leave the city and after three and a half hours we walk around the Kremlin of the ancient city. An ensemble of buildings including the princely chambers, the Church of Dimitry on Blood, the Transfiguration Cathedral, the bell tower and the building of the City Duma have been preserved from former times.
The Church of Dimitri on Blood - built on the site of the murder of Tsarevich Dimitri where in the first years of the XVII century a wooden chapel was cut down, in 1630 it was replaced by a wooden church, and in 1692 the existing stone church was built:

Photo 9. Another 58 kilometers after Rybinsk and we come to the town of Krasny Bor, where on the bank of the Volga a unique monument of wooden architecture of the second half of the 19th century — the cottage of the merchant Sorokin — lives on its time:

Photo 10. Now you can only imagine what was the cottage. From the stories of local residents known the history of this unique monument. They say that the merchant saw this building in 1865 at the Nizhny Novgorod Fair and was conquered by its fine carving and rich decoration. The house was bought for 50 thousand rubles (crazy money at the time), disassembled transported along the Volga and put in one of the most picturesque places:

Photo 11.After the revolution, the building housed a rest home for the working people, and after World War II there was a children's camp here. In our time, the absence of a real owner led to the complete demise of this unique object:

Photo 12. The last point on this train is Turaev (until 1918 - Romanov-Borisoglebsk) - the city is located on both banks of the Volga River and enters the Golden Ring of Russia. It arose as a result of the merger of two independent cities - Romanov and Borisoglebsk, located on the opposite banks of the Volga and having their own administrative and economic structure.

Photo 13. The city has preserved many pre-revolutionary buildings of different degrees of preservation:
