Юрьев-Польский (Yuryev-Polsky) description

Yuryev-Polsky is an old town located in the upper reaches of the Koloksha River.

The town's major attraction is the lovely Cathedral of St. George built between 1230 and 1234. All the walls are covered by finest stone carvings that formed huge compositions.

It is the latest pre-Mongol construction in Russia, unprecedented in abundance of stone sculptures, and also the model for first stone churches in the Moscow Kremlin.

In the 1460s, regrettable the cathedral's dome collapsed, thus burying most of unique sculptures which had adorned the cathedral walls. At the time was considered a national disaster. The collapsed roof was restored in 1471.

The main monument of the Muscovite period is the walled Monastery of Archangel Michael, founded in the 13th century and containing various buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries.

You will have a nice and peaceful walk through the gardens of the monastery.

Several miles from Yuryev, on the bank of the Yakhroma River, stands the Kosmin Cloister, whose structures are typical for the mid-17th century.
