Rzhev is one of the ancient towns of Russia. It was founded in the XIIIth century. The first settlements appeared on the high hill in the place where a small river Holyinka flows into the Volga. Rzhev is the first big town on the Upper Volga. In the middle of the XVIIIth century rich merchants began building stone houses in the central part of the town. A lot of churches were erected.
Rzhev was almost totally destroyed during the Great Patriotic War. Severe battles continued on its territory for seventeen months. After the war the citizens restored their town. In 2007 Rzhev was awarded the honorable title “The City of Military Glory”. Modern Rzhev is a quiet green town with a population of a little more than 60 thousand people.
If you come to our town you should see the beautiful buildings of Rzhev churches. One of them, rather small, was built not long ago next to a beautiful nine-storied building of Rzhev hotel that stands on a high bank of the Volga River. It would be nice to walk along the embankment that leads from the hotel to Obelisk. It is a monument erected in memory of the Russian soldiers who died during the Great Patriotic War defending our town. From the high bank of the river you can see the part of the town situated on the right lower bank of the Volga. The view is very picturesque, especially in summer. It would also be interesting to visit our local museum, to look at the “Diorama of Rzhev Battles. 24 September, 1942” and learn some facts about the history of the town. Another place worth visiting is the Town Exhibition Hall where works of our local artists, sculptors and craftsmen are displayed. Welcome to our town!
