Shuya sights – 15 most important sights in the city

Shuya, founded in 1536, is among the old Russian towns that have left a significant trace in the history of the country. The polis was the ancestral fiefdom of the princes of the Rurikovich family. One of them – Prince Vasily IV Shuisky – ruled Muscovy at the beginning of the XVII century and gave up the throne only to the representatives of the Romanov dynasty. Now a quiet and provincial Shuya in the Middle Ages was an important commercial and industrial center. At the annual fairs here eagerly came foreign merchants, and the products of local soapmakers, furriers and weavers was famous throughout Russia. For the traveler the town is of great interest.

The academician worshipped Russian architecture and tried to maximize the use of elements of authentic style in the design of his creations.
