Description
Bronnitcy City Tour

Bronnitcy town, its population and economy traditionally tended to horses. The House of Romanov stables, established in Bronnitsy by 1634, evolved into stud farms supplying riding horses to the cavalry. In the 1780s the administrative reform of Catherine the Great turned the village into a proper small town with a grid plan and a growing merchant community. In the second half of the 19th century Bronnitsy was gradually industrialized, becoming a town of small textile mills and jewelers.
The main and oldest landmark of Bronnitsy is the Cathedral of the Archangel, standing in the heart of the city. To the north of the Archangel Cathedral there is a church of Mother of God built in the late XIX century.
At the entrance to the city on the Ryazan road, you will see the brick Church of the Assumption. Bronnitsy history is inextricably linked to this site.
