The first stop after leaving Moscow was the historic town of Uglich founded in 1148 on the banks of the Volga River. After the death of Ivan the Terrible, his youngest son Dimitry was banished to Uglich in 1584. The most famous event in the town's history took place on May 15, 1591 when the 10-year old boy was found dead with his throat cut in the palace courtyard. Suspicion immediately fell on the tsar's chief advisor, Boris Gudunov, as an attempt to seize the crown.  Investigators concluded that Dimitry's death was an accident.  Next stop:  Yaroslavl.
