Our country is very large and beautiful. There are a lot of towns and cities. We want to tell you about Gorodets. It is one of the oldest Russian cities. It was founded in 1152 by Prince Yuri Dolgoruky. Gorodets was built as a military base and a fortress on a steep left bank of the Volga River about 50 miles above the confluence of the Oka River. It was a starting point for numerous campaigns of the princes of Vladimir and Suzdal against Volga Bulgaria. In 1239, the town was burnt to the ground by Baty Khan's army. Folk tradition identifies Gorodets with Little Kitezh, a legendary town destroyed by the Mongols. In 1263, Alexander Nevsky died in Gorodets on his way back to Novgorod from the Golden Horde. Gorodets was revived as a prosperous village settled by Old Believer merchants and reputed for its decorative handicrafts, such as wood carving and painting. There are some churches and Feodorovsky Monastery, associated with the famous icon of the same name there. Gorodets is rich in museums, among them “Town of Masters», devoted to the history of wooden architecture of the XVI-XIX centuries. Getting into the town you find yourself in the past - modest peasant houses, houses of wealthy merchants, the prince's luxury tower - all was created in the XXI century. The Gingerbread Museum- Gingerbread from Gorodets has been famous since the XVII century. In the second half of the 19 century there were 15 bakeries in Gorodets where several dozen varieties of cakes (different sizes and tastes) were baked. The Samovar Museum, the basis of the exhibition is a private collection of honorary citizen of Gorodets, Nikolai Polyakov. The exposition includes more than 500 samovars, as well as other objects of Russian tea ceremony. The exhibition is one of the largest in Russia.
