Uglich is a historic town located in Yaroslavl Oblast, Russia. It stands on Volga River and has a population of around 34,500 inhabitants (2010 census) on a total area of 26.6 km2 (10.3 ml2).
A local tradition dates the origins of Uglich to 937. The town was first documented as Ugliche Pole (Corner Field) in 1148. Its name is thought to refer to the nearby turn in Volga River.
Apart from kremlin, the city center boasts other samples of old Russian architecture, of which particularly notable are Resurrection and Alexeievsky monasteries. The Assumption 3-tented church (1628) of Alexeyevsky Monastery is a true gem of Russia's medieval architecture. As "Marvelous" is the epithet which common people gave to the church, it became part of its official name. Situated close by is the more conventional Church of Saint John the Baptist (1681).
Closer to the bank of Volga River travelers may see Resurrection Monastery with its large cathedral, belfry, refectory and summer church. All of these buildings, standing in a row, date back to 1674-1677. Opposite the Resurrection Monastery is the Church of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist, built in 1689-1690 by a local merchant in order to commemorate the site where his son had drowned.
Older architecture that may be seen in Uglich includes a church in Divnogorye and the 17th-century Uleima Monastery.
Highlights: Church of St. Demetrius, Kremlin, Palace of Czarevich Dimitry
