14 photo with description
Pereyaslavl-Ryazan was founded in 1095, as indicated in the Following Psalter, which is stored today in the museum-reserve. After the ruin by the Mongol-Tatar army Batu Ryazan (Staraya) in 1285, Archbishop Vasily Ryazan transferred the episcopal pulpit to Pereyaslavl, and then, in the middle of the XIV century, the capital of the Ryazan principality was also transferred here.

Ryazan Historical and Architectural Museum-Reserve is one of the oldest museums in Russia. At a meeting of the Provincial Scientific Archival Commission on June 15, 1884, it was decided to create a historical museum.

The bell tower of the Assumption Cathedral
The bell tower of the Assumption Cathedral of the Ryazan Kremlin is one of the 20 tallest bell towers in Russia and is one of the tallest buildings in the Ryazan Region. Built in 1789-1840. Architects: S. A. Vorotilov, I. F. Russko, K. A. Ton, N. I. Voronikhin. To the right above the moat is Glebov bridge, in the old days it was lifting.

Transfiguration Monastery
Transfiguration Monastery and Assumption Cathedral . The Assumption Cathedral was built in 1693-1699 by the architect of the serfs, Yakov Grigorievich Bukhvostov. The stylized image of the cathedral is one of the symbols of Ryazan . It is interesting that the previous cathedral at this place collapsed in 1 night due to design errors (it stood for less than a year). This temple was rebuilt larger and became the most ambitious building in Russia of the XVII century.

Kremlin pier
Kremlin pier on the river Trubezh. From the berth they take the bus to Oka, along which pleasure boats go. Both the Oka and Trubezh were once more full, which complicated the siege of the fortress.

A walk along the Oka River is small, there is nothing special to see, except perhaps the impressive Oksky high-water bridge. You can ride at a time.
