... town with pretty wooden buildings and churches. We visited an old manor house which once belonged to a member of the Decembrist movement. A group of political activists, many of whom were from high society, held a revolt on the 26th December 1825 (hence Decembrists) in St Petersburg after Constantine, who should have been Tsar following his father's death, made his renunciation.
