What awaits you
The richest history of the city I will tell you how the city, which is more than a thousand years old, is connected with the history of the state. You will see a defensive tower, where a gap has been preserved, into which a lattice was lowered, blocking the path of enemies, and wonderful temples that are included in all art history catalogs. You will find out why the 17th century became “golden” for Yaroslavl and how it turned out that it was the local theater that became the first public theater in Russia. Yaroslavl is a city in which they are sensitive to the past, and you will understand this walking along the old-old streets, where even plaques with historical names have been preserved
Places from postcards You will find that the Yaroslavl chapel and the monument to the founder of the city are already a little familiar to you: it is they who are depicted on the 1,000-ruble bill, and you will have a chance to compare them. You will visit Red Square (yes, Yaroslavl has its own Red Square!) And walk along the Volzhskaya embankment, which is rightfully considered the most beautiful on the Volga, touch the monument "zero kilometer of the Golden Ring of Russia" and visit Strelka - the place where Yaroslavl was founded, the beginning of the "chopped city". There you will see the coat of arms of Yaroslavl, and I will tell you where the bear with the poleaxe is from.
