Rostov Kremlin

Rostov’s impressive Kremlin was built in the 17th Century under the orders of the powerful Metropolitan Iona of Rostov. He wanted the town (which in those days still wielded some power in the region) to have one of the most beautiful Kremlins in the country and to that end he dug deep into the church's coffers to build this imposing fortress.
Nowadays within the Kremlin walls there are numerous museums, although unfortunately most of them are of little interest to foreign visitors. It is however well worth climbing up the Kremlin walls and the bell tower, taking a look in the cathedral and checking out the regular art exhibitions. The Kremlin also has its own trapeznya café selling inexpensive soups, pies, pancakes and other snacks.
In front of the Kremlin is the huge 12th Century Dormition of Mary Cathedral, which is in essence a working church - although it should be noted that inside it is undergoing a complete renovation. For a small extra fee you can also climb up the adjacent bell tower for a view over the surrounding area.
