Description of Uglich city

Uglich is a historic town in Yaroslavl Oblast, Russia, on the Volga River. Population: 38,260.
A local tradition dates the town's origin back to 937. It was first documented in 1148 as Ugliche Pole (Corner Field). The town's name is thought to allude to the turn the Volga makes nearby.
Uglich had been the seat of a small princedom from 1218 until 1328 when the local princes sold their rights to the great prince of Moscow. As a border town of Muscovy, it was burnt several times by Lithuanians, Tatars and the grand prince of Tver. The distance from Moscow dures 4 hours by bus.
The modern town did have a famous watch manufacturing plant now closed, a railway station, and a hydroelectric power station. In November 2008 was opened a new Nexans cable mill. Actually, Stalin's decision to create the Uglich Reservoir led to severe flooding of the town's outskirts. Apart from the Kremlin, the city centre features other nice samples of old Russian architecture. Particularly notable are the Alexeievsky and Resurrection monasteries.
Throughout almost all of its history Uglich lived by trade. In ancient times this was a site of the leather trade. In the 16th century the town provided the royal kitchens with starlet, and traded in pelts. In the 19th century it made a name for itself with cured hams and sausage. And in the 20th century — the Uglich cheeses, the famous watches with bracelets of the exquisite finift enamel and delicate, lace-like metal tracery.
In this town everything – the unique watches, the lovingly preserved wooden and stone houses of the 18th-19th centuries, where one can still encounter the old stoves with ornate tiles, the lacework of wooden-carved window casings and valances, in everything one witnesses the remarkable talent of the people who are both capable of creating works of art and able to lovingly preserve them for the generations to come.
It’s not by chance the small Uglich is not only entered into the historical “Golden Ring of Russia”, but is by right one of its main historical landmarks.
