    where time stands still

    one of the many churches

    Favorite thing: Uglich, population 35,000. It's a simple town where time seems to stand still. There's a handful of beautiful and historical churches where the old cremlin walls once were, and plenty of little wooden cabins which have known better days. It's located on the River Volga and it's very ancient, having been founded in 1148. it's the place where the nine-year-old Ivan the Terrible's son, Dimitry, was found dead under not so mysterious circumstances, and where he exiled his 7th wife.

    Fondest memory: The Church of St. Demetrius of the Blood, with its blue onion-shaped domes adorned with little white stars is the most impressive sight - one which I really enjoyed. I also enjoyed walking around town, appreciating the laid-back atmosphere and the delicious blueberries at the market.
