Yaroslavl

A World Heritage Site boasting hundreds of architectural monuments, Yaroslavl sits on the confluence of the Volga and Kotorosl Rivers and is renowned for its historical town center. Located some 250 km (150 mi) northeast of Moscow, the city sits as a part of the so-called "Golden Ring," a group of historic towns preserving the country's cultural heritage and prominently featuring quintessentially Russian onion domes. Largely undamaged by Soviet building efforts, which marred other cities with gray housing blocks and characterless government buildings, Yaroslavl serves as a kind of open-air museum, offering visitors a chance to learn about the evolution of Russian architecture and urban planning between the 17th and the 19th centuries. Customize your holiday with our Russia itinerary planner to create an adventure that suits you.

Where to stay in Yaroslavl

Places to stay in Yaroslavl might not be as numerous as in some other Russian cities, but you can still find a good selection of accommodation to satisfy a range of tastes and budgets. The city is home to several large hotels, ranging from the luxurious, with on-site spas and swimming pools, to more modest economy options. A handful of small, charming boutique hotels and bed and breakfasts offer more intimate lodging. Fully equipped apartments and budget hostels round out the selection. Because accommodation in Yaroslavl is not particularly plentiful, it's always wise to make reservations ahead of time.
