Ivanovo Russia Marriott Hotel
Ivanovo (Russian: Ivanovo) is located in the city of Ivanovka, Russia, about 30 km south - west of Moscow and about 20 km north - east of St. Petersburg, the capital of Russia.
Ivanovo is known as the capital of Calico in Russia because large textile factories were established here. The Russian economy opened up to competition from Asia, and the textile industry went into decline in the mid-19th century.
At present, the number of textile companies is slightly down compared to the USSR, but there are textile examples, including fabrics for Soviet-era propaganda posters. There are still many sewing shops in Ivanovo, especially in the vicinity of the city centre and the village of Krasnodar.
Here you can also admire church utensils and buy thematic souvenirs, as well as a number of other souvenir shops in the town centre and in the village of Ivanovo.
A taxi from Moscow costs between 4000 and 5000 rupees, depending on where you want to go, but the cost is 450 rupees. There are seven buses a day from the bus station in Kostroma, stopping near the station and departing several times a day.
You can also take a regional bus to nearby Palech, which has much more charm than Ivanovo and is the center of Russian iconography and miniature painting. If you are travelling from Moscow, there are 5 flights a week to Ivanova, each flight taking about an hour.
In the northern part of the town there is the Ivanovo North Railway Station, a large railway junction. It was built after the destruction of the previous church by the Soviets in 1931, and the Museum of Local History contains documents that prove that there was a village called Ivan in what later became a larger settlement. In the middle of the 19th century, a new, more spacious railway station was built, which is still the largest architectural monument of modernity in Russia.
The village belonged to Ivan the Terrible, who after marrying Maria Cherkassk gave it to the Prince of Cherksa, and the land then became part of the village of Ivanovo, a village in the Russian Empire. At the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century it merged with the other villages of Krasnoyarsk Oblast, the city of St. Petersburg and its surroundings to form the "Ivanovo Industrial Oblast," which lasted until 1936.
Although many of the country's textile companies ended up in the occupied territories and some factories in Leningrad were closed, Ivanovo played a key role in supplying the Red Army with textiles. In the early 1930s, fires destroyed most of these large companies in Moscow, increasing demand and the price of textiles, while local factories, unable to compete, began to increase production in order to compete.
In the post-war period, the problem of the relationship between male and female populations arose precipitously. Until then, women were mainly employed in textile companies, but even before the war, the number of women in these companies was much higher, and this imbalance only worsened after the war.
This imbalance is also the reason why Ivanovo became known in the USSR as the "City of Brides" and in this respect began to be called "Ivanovo." In the mid-19th century Ivanova was also known as Manchester, England, which is known worldwide for its textile industry.
In the first half of the 18th century Ivanovo had commercial relations with Astrakhan, in which transactions with the East were conducted. Raw materials, fuels and dyes were brought from remote areas of the Russian Empire and abroad. Experts believe that the name of the town first appeared during the reign of Ivan the Terrible, when he transferred the settlement to the ethnic Circassians, the princes of Circassia, under the command of his wife Maria Ivanovna.
The city became the centre of the spread of Constructivist architecture and was the ideal society embodied by avant-garde architects, especially Constructivists. Some of the best architects from abroad were sent to the city and it became a centre of the spread of constructivist architecture.
In the second half of the 19th century Ivanovo had several dozen companies, but unlike neighbouring towns it developed primarily as a centre of light industry and not as an industrial centre. The country's industrial potential was determined by its proximity to the city centre and the presence of large numbers of women. For this reason, it was unofficially named the "City of Brides," as a large number of these women worked in the construction of buildings, factories, hotels and other public buildings.
The importance of the city was not limited to the fact that its inhabitants reached the top in textile production. Because of their occupation in production, the inhabitants of this town had the opportunity to relax and get in touch with the beautiful people, even without leaving Ivanovo. As someone who has been to the property before, I am sure you have been told that by others.
