The Kremlin in Uglich is no longer walled, but is a pleasant area that is worth strolling through the churches and statues. However, it is worth having a guide, which was provided by our River Cruise Company (Viking), so that their stories come alive. Nice...More

Interesting site from several points of view. Although, the Kremlin walls are gone you will see many churches, the palace and the cite of death of Dmitry, son of Ivan the Terrible.

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.
