Travel on Sviyazhsk Tours to the island-city of Sviyazhsk, built by Ivan the Terrible in only a month during his campaign against Kazan. A fusion of Russian and Tatar culture, Sviyazhsk is replete with gorgeous historical sites that prompted Pushkin to declare it to be the living image of the fabulous Buyan Island described in his work “The Tale of Tsar Saltan”.
Sviyazhsk has become a center of Orthodoxy which includes gems such as Cathedral of the Icon of the Mother of All Who Sorrow, John the Baptist Monastery and Assumption Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage site with 17th-century frescoes. History fans will be fascinated by the Lazy Torzhok Complex, a historically reconstructed village where you can immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the Middle Ages, while travelers of every kind will enjoy the jaw-dropping views of Sviyazhsky Bay from the observation deck of Rozhdestvenskaya Square.
