This town is a real piece of history and northern Russian flavor. Founded back in 1146, Kargopol was called "the northern outpost of ancient Russia."
It is worth starting your acquaintance with the city of Kargopol from its main square - New Torgovaya, or Cathedral. It is here that the greatest concentration of attractions is.

For example, the "New Trading" quartet, with the main building - the stone Cathedral of the Nativity of Christ. An ancient white-stone temple with five black domes, the builders of the whole ten years. And then it was reconstructed for a long time. Inside, it would be best if you looked at the old iconostasis on the second tier.

The Cathedral bell tower rises next to the temple. This is not the first bell tower. Her progenitor was burned down in a terrible fire that raged in the city in 1765. Then Catherine II was ordered to restore the city, and a three-tiered, 65-meter stone bell tower appeared on the square.
A little further from the Cathedral and the bell tower, a small Vvedenskaya church is a single-domed construction of an ascetic look.

There are so many churches and cathedrals in the city that even the Kargopol Historical, Architectural, and Art Museum are located within the walls of the Vvedenskaya Church. And the town itself is called "Northern Suzdal". Be sure to visit the Alexander-Oshevensky Monastery, Trinity Church, Resurrection Church, Church of Zosima and Savvaty on Gorka, Church of the Nativity of the Virgin, Nikolskaya Church, Annunciation Church.
