Kalyazin is a small and quiet provincial town.
However it is an ancient place that had remarkable sights. But in the Soviet times Kalyazin lost some of them and got its unusual attraction in return – the central part of the town was flooded during the construction of Uglich hydropower station and the bell tower of St. Nicholas cathedral found itself on a small island in the middle of the reservoir.
Now this flooded belfry is among the most memorable sights on the Volga.
Guests of Kalyazin are offered a walking tour around the town, they can also take a boat trip to the bell tower.
Optionally here it is possible to visit the house of Baba Yaga – a Russian fairy tale character.
