While there we went to the top of the bell tower and into the cathedral on day and visited the museums the second day. The view from the top of the bell tower was incredible. The last level is not for the faint of heart. The walkway is uneven wooden grating over the copper roof and the grating moves as... More

First you see the Kremlin itself and then exhibitions of ikons, some old traditional etnografic things and last gingebread museum. In summer I do advise to visit Sophia and top of belfry.

We visited the place during October weekend - there was only few souls inside. We did not climb the tower but enjoyed nice views of Kremlin wall, highly recommended

Well, not a lot of it is left. Founded as a fortress in 1567 and mostly dismantled by the 1820's! There are several architectural monuments which had been built at the same time now preserved.

Vologda does not have many places of interests and Kremlin is the only place to go here. Interesting statues and monuments

We had an hour or two in Vologda to spend before our trip to the monasteries in the north, so we walked from the train station to the Monastery. It's a nice place, interesting buildings, makes a lovely walk. Many churches and interesting statues around.

Not much to see in Vologda in terms of tourism so most people will visit the Kremlin. Spent some time here to visit a good friend and to go to a wedding. There was typical weather for early May and we ended up at the Kremlin quite often. Took wedding pictures here, sat around another day to relax, and played... More
