Uglich is an interesting town to visit. The grounds of its Kremlin citadel surround the green-domed Transfiguration Cathedral. Inside there is an ornate wall of icons and to photograph the art you need to pay for an inexpensive voucher. Close by, the Church of St....More

Uglich is a lovely town with good architectural examples and interesting although somewhat questionable history. Tradition says Ivan the Terrible's son, Demitry, was living here and was treacherously killed for political gain at the age of 10. There is at least one other theory so...More

Hi Keith, The Kremlin is about 1 km north of the dam near the center of Uglich. It is a short walk from where the River Cruise Ships dock and from the Moskva (Intourist) Hotel.
