Excursion to Sviyazhsk


Further, our sightseeing bus begins to move towards the famous island-town Sviyazhsk.  A tour of Sviyazhsk is something unforgettable, it is something that you should definitely see for yourself at least once.  This city was destined to receive soldiers before the decisive battles, on which the fate of the Russian state depended.  This happened for the first time in 1552, when it became a stronghold where the troops of Ivan the Terrible gathered and prepared.  After 4 unsuccessful campaigns against the Kazan Khanate, Ivan the Terrible nevertheless captured Kazan.

 The second time this happened in 1918, when Sviyazhsk became the point of formation of the armed forces of the young Soviet republic.  After Kazan left the Red Army, its military units were demoralized and needed to be replenished.  Thanks to the iron will of the Soviet leadership and the measures taken, it was possible to regain control of the capital of Tatarstan and lay the foundation for the creation of disciplined and combat-ready forces.

 During an excursion to Sviyazhsk from Kazan, excursionists learn that the city has not only a military history, but is also one of the spiritual centers.  Tourists will see: Bogoroditsky Monastery, the Assumption Monastery and other architectural monuments created in the XVI-XVIII centuries.  Inspection takes about 5 hours, and during this time of the tour you will simply be amazed at the full history of Sviyazhsk.  This is a truly unique city.
