How to get to Myshkin? If without a car, then the simplest option is to get to Rybinsk, from where buses go to Uglich with a stop on the opposite bank of the Volga, it remains to wait for the ferry. There is a bus from Yaroslavl, but it goes in the evening and is 2.5 times more expensive (the distance is longer).

The population of Myshkin is only 5,000 people, while from its, in fact, the village, Myshkin people made a fairy tale, where tourists break in crowds! Even cruise ships began to moor, which was not yet in the 90s.
