Violence trails a violent man even in death. Ivan the Terrible’s young son Dmitry was killed in Uglich in 1591, marking both the end of the Rurik dynasty and the advent of the Time of Troubles, Russia’s most turbulent political era. The Romanovs canonized Dmitry, and in 1690 built the
Church of St. Dmitry on the Blood, a blue-domed cathedral located on the spot of the boy’s death. Dating to 937, Uglich features many other examples of ancient Russian architecture, notably the Assumption Cathedral of the Alexeievsky Monastery, a pearl of the Russian medieval period.
