Tsarevokokshaisk Kremlin
April 13, 2016 19:20


Historical and Cultural Complex "Tsarevokokshaisk Kremlin" is an architectural ensemble of the churches,  fortress walls and towers, stylized as the medieval Russian fortress.

It is expected to become the new cultural center of Yoshkar-Ola, the venue for various events. The first visitors were here on November 4, 2009, that is the Day the Republic of Mari El. However, the construction works are not completed and the complex will be gradually added with more new buildings. Currently Tsarevokokshaisk Kremlin is a park with benches for resting, fenced by brick ramparts.

There are 4 different shaped towers in the corners of the walls. Inside the Kremlin, on the inner perimeter of the walls, the booths with materials about the history of the city are installed, where you can admire the old photos of the city. You can also go upstairs the walls. Once upon a time this place was a baston of the fortress wall of the city Tsarevokokshaisk (as originally called Yoshkar-Ola). The fortress was built of oak, and, unfortunately, nothing of the old buildings has been preserved up to now.

Till 1919 it was a Market Place, then till 2008 it was the Revolution Square, representing a small park with walking alleys. A statue of Lenin was in the middle of the park. In autumn 2008, the construction of the cultural center was started. An exhibition of archaeological finds was open in the south-west tower in April 2010. The finds were found during the excavations on the territory of Yoshkar-Ola. Here, a small cafe in the open air is housed inside the tower.
