    Tikhvin Cathedral (XVIII – XIX centuries), Trinity Novo-Golutvin Monastery (XVII – XIX centuries) and school (early XX century).

    Among the most ancient buildings of the Kolomna Kremlin is the Resurrection Church adjacent to Cathedral Square (XIV – XIX centuries), in which Prince Dmitry Donskoy and Evdokia were married in 1366.

    A walk through the Small city Center, affecting Sobornaya and Sennaya Squares, Lenin Square (after the official opening of shopping malls on the territory of the square in the XIX century, the most famous now in Ryazan, at first only flour and grain were sold here, for this reason the square has the unspoken name "Khlebnaya"), the summer house of the Noble Assembly, Pochtovaya Streets and Astrakhan, at the intersection of which there is a monument to Yevpatiy Kolovrat

    On the Theater Square there is a Drama Theater, a monument to K.E.Tsiolkovsky and the Nikolo-Yamskaya Temple.

    The monument to S.A. Yesenin is the main and largest of the monuments to the famous countryman located in Ryazan.

    The saying "We have mushrooms with eyes in Ryazan, they eat them, they look" (During the Tatar-Mongol invasion, it was mushrooms that were an indicator of where the Mongols raced on their steeds) is dedicated to the original sculptural composition "Mushrooms with eyes in Ryazan".

    A wonderful panorama of the Ryazan Kremlin opens from the embankment of the Trubezh River.

    Visiting the territory of the Ryazan Kremlin (independently, without an accompanying guide).

    On the southwestern side of the Kremlin hill there is an ancient earthen rampart – a defensive structure of the XIII-XVII centuries. Until the end of the XVII – beginning of the XVIII century. wooden walls and towers of the Kremlin were located on the rampart. 

    In front of the rampart was a defensive moat filled with water.

    The territory of the Cathedral Park is connected to the Kremlin by the Glebovsky Bridge, which successfully performed military and defensive functions in the XV century. During sieges, the bridge rose to the walls, thereby blocking the way of the attackers.

    In the western part of the Cathedral Park there is the Church of the Savior on Yar, which offers a wonderful view of the flood meadows. The elegant five-domed church is deservedly considered one of the best in Ryazan, and is also the oldest functioning temple in the city.
