The main square of the city (Susaninskaya Ploshchad?) is named after Ivan Susanin, a peasant who became a hero after misleading Polish invaders into a swamp, where they all died.
The square has several buildings of note, clockwise around the northern side are: the Fire Watch Tower (still in use, and under UNESCO protection), the Guard-House (a former military jail ? now a literature museum), the General S.Borshov?s House (the palace of an 1812 war hero, being a hotel for members of the royal family afterwards, now a courthouse) and the Town Hall.
Then you?ll see the main city street ? Sovietskaya and the perfect ensemble of the Arcaded Central Market.
Locals call the square a frying pan, haha!
