What awaits you
Ferry crossing and ancient temples Despite the fact that the city has long lived on two banks, there is no bridge over the Volga, so you will get to the opposite side by ferry - and this will become a separate pleasant part of the adventure. On a walk, I will introduce you to the most interesting temples of Tutaev. You will visit the Resurrection Cathedral of the 17th century with beautiful tiles and one of the largest icons of the medieval Orthodox world. See the Annunciation, Intercession and Transfiguration-Kazan churches, as well as the Holy Cross Cathedral, which was the heart of the ancient fortress, the Romanov Kremlin
A favorite of filmmakers The main highlight of Tutaev is that he has preserved not only the architecture of the 19th century, but the special rhythm of life typical for cozy towns of past eras. That is why the directors who shot a lot of films here loved him so much - you will see the filming locations of such films as “12 chairs”, “The Enchanted Wanderer”, “Call me into the bright distance”, “Walking across the three seas”, “Yaroslav: a thousand years back”,“MosGaz”,“Doctor Zhivago”and many other Soviet and modern works
Echoes of a bygone life From the beautiful panoramic platform on the fire tower, you will look at the surroundings, walk along the cozy streets of a provincial town, look at the manor buildings and textured houses with carved window frames. And you will also hear about the famous native of the Romanovsky district - Admiral Fyodor Ushakov. And as a result, you will try to imagine what the Romanov-Borisoglebsk, sparkling with golden crosses, was like before the revolution, which inspired Kustodiev to create the pictures "Walking on the Volga", "Province", "Bathing" and other masterpieces.
