Golden Ring      

Russia     

Yaroslavl

Founded in 1010 by Yaroslav the Wise (future Grand Prince of Kiev ), is a large, pleasantly quiet old town, and yet much more metropolitan than the other cities on the Golden Ring. Yaroslavl developed rapidly because of its favorable location along the Volga trade route.

In 1218 it became the capital of the independent feudal Yaroslavl principality. In 1463 the Principality merged with the Moscow state. During the XVII century Yaroslavl became a port of entry into Russia , and the city advanced to the third place after Moscow and Kazan as a center of trade.

It is a town of trades and crafts, of numerous churches striking your imagination with its original beauty.

Of special interest are the Monastery of the Transfiguration of the Saviour, founded in 12th centuty, and the majestic Church of Elijah the Prophet.
