What awaits you
The most important thing in Yaroslavl Our route includes iconic places of the city: we will visit the Soviet square and see the first Russian theater; Let's take a look outside the Transfiguration Monastery-Bogatyr, which once played the role of the Moscow Kremlin and saved Russia in 1612. Admire the elegant churches of Elijah the Prophet, Epiphany, Michael the Archangel, Savior on the City and the majestic Assumption Cathedral. We will walk along the Volga embankment and reach the Strelka, where the Volga and Kotorosl rivers meet - the cradle of the city and the principality. I will tell you about the main attractions, about the legend of the ancient city and its living symbol
Tea story Merchants, clergy, nobility - we will talk about what united these estates, namely, about their love for tea! That is why there were many taverns, teahouses, restaurants in Yaroslavl. "Bristol", "Constantinople", "Passage", "Pillars" - you will see their buildings, learn about the tea ceremony in Yaroslavl. Hear about the big tea businessmen who traded all over Russia and even created their own production
Yaroslavl tastes So that you can feel the atmosphere of the ancient city, reveal the character of the townspeople, I will tell you about local traditions and tastes. Indeed, at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, it was Yaroslavl that was considered the unspoken "sweet capital" of the Russian Empire: there were 10 confectionery factories per 100 thousand people in the city. What sweets did the most advanced factory produce? What publicity stunts did the Kuznetsovs do? I will reveal an almost detective story of one confectionery family and share the secret of the French name of the Belfort factory. I will show you the famous sweet factory and confectioners' cake on the Volzhskaya embankment. And, of course, I will tell you about other gastronomic preferences of the residents of Yaroslavl
And in order not to freeze while walking, we can look into a cozy cafe and warm up with a cup of tea, coffee or other traditional drink with a taste of original sweetness!
