What awaits you

History of Tver development You will hear about the fire of 1763, which destroyed the Tver Kremlin and the entire central part of the city, and about the reconstruction of Tver under the leadership of the architect Nikitin. You will learn about the times when all of Russia was "cut down", and Tver was built in stone, repeating the European ray system of streets and buildings with a "solid facade". I will tell you what it meant for the city to be not just western, but also the gateway from Russian Moscow to European St. Petersburg

Postal area From the present square of the Holy Blessed Prince Mikhail of Tverskoy, construction began and the radial arrangement of the streets began from here. I will tell you about the former post office, where travelers stayed on their way from one capital to another. I will show you a gift to the city - a monument to the heavenly patron saint of Tver. And on the former Millionnaya Street (now Sovetskaya), let's talk about the central ray that cut through the city in the 18th century to the end

Octagonal square It had several names: Ekaterininskaya, Fontannaya, Judicial, now it is square. Lenin. You will find out why the author himself called it Octagonal, discern the features of the urban planning art of early classicism and learn about the purpose of the square

theatre square Here you will meet the cultural centers of Tver: the Drama Theater and the Philharmonic. See one of the two monuments to Pushkin erected in the city. And on the outskirts of the square, I will introduce you to the building of the Noble Assembly of the architect Lvov

Cathedral Square In the center, you will see the Transfiguration Cathedral of the 13th century - the main spiritual center of the Tver region. And, of course, you will learn about the pearl of the square - the Imperial Traveling Palace, on the ensemble of which the outstanding architects Kazakov and Rossi worked. There is an art gallery in the palace, which you can later visit on your own.
