At first I wanted to call the report a line from the well-known song, but I decided that it was too obvious and trivial. (VIA Pesnyary "Vologda", , AN)

In Vologda I spend not a long time, only 2-3 hours, so the impression of the city is rather superficial, but generally is positive. Despite the broken roads in downtown, I'd rather stay in it for at least a couple of days. I was in this northern city in the very beginning of May, the snow has already melted everywhere, but the trees have not yet blossomed. I think that in summer the city is very green!

Monument to the poet Batiushkov. Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with his work, so I can not recommend him. But it looks like Pushkin!

In general, it is a rather strange composition of monuments completely unrelated at first glance to each other with characters. A woman with a scythe – she is a Muza. Local residents believe that if you rub the foot of the Muse with your thumb and make a wish, it will certainly come true.

In Vologda, goats are used as a public transport!

One of the oldest and most interesting places in the city is the Vologda Kremlin. The Kremlin square:

The main cathedral of Vologda is Sophia, it was built under Ivan the Terrible (in 1567). Beautiful!

If you thought it was a monument to a pissing dog, then you were mistaken. No, this is a monument to the First Electric Lantern in honor of the centenary of the electrification of Vologda (established in 2004).

The Spaso-Prilutsky. It was founded in 1371 in the beautiful bend of the river Vologda. Probably, this is the oldest and largest monastery of the Russian North, so I could not go into it.

The monastery was founded by the disciple of Sergius of Radonezh, later known as St. Demetrius Prilutsky.
