What awaits you
Rostov in the palm of your hand From the platform of the unique belfry, you will see perhaps the best panorama of the ancient city. From an unusual point of view, we will consider the Dormition Cathedral of the 16th century, which served as the burial vault of princes and bishops, the Church of the Savior on Seny, metropolitan and state mansions, fortress walls and towers. From a bird's eye view, we will admire the merchant buildings: Emelyanovskiy row and the Gostiny Dvor. You will see the domes of the Rozhdestvensky nunnery, hear the history of the Exaltation of the Cross bell tower, which barely survived the 20th century, look for earthen ramparts and modern buildings
Chronicles and secrets of the ancient city Observing the city from the bell tower, we will simultaneously "walk" through the eras of Rostov: I will tell you about the archaeological finds near Lake Nero, the Finno-Ugric tribes that inhabited these lands before our era, and the Slavic colonization of Russia. Through the thousand-year history of the Assumption Cathedral, we will consider the main stages in the development of the Rostov land, Kievan Rus, the Moscow state, the Russian Empire and the USSR. Who is Metropolitan Jonah III? How were the unique Rostov bells cast? How was the fate of the main atheist Rostov? We will talk about this and many other things during the excursion.
