Cathedral of the Assumption, Yaroslavl

4.0
#5 of 26 in Historic Sites in Yaroslavl
Church Tourist Spot
Mounted by five gilded domes, Cathedral of the Assumption stands nearby where Yaroslav the Wise is said to have founded the city. The newest temple was built in 2010 to replace the 16th-century cathedral that was demolished by Communists in 1937. See the cathedral's original bells on display outside. Inside, admire the iconostasis and antique icons, which were donated by wealthy locals. Custom requires women to cover their heads when entering the church. Nearby attractions include an eternal flame and a monument to Russian soldiers who served during World War II.

  • Good view of Strelka Park
  • Good view
  • Uspenska crkva u Jaroslavlju sagrađena je u nedavnoj prošlosti. Svojim izgledom potseća nas na stare ruske crkve ali objektivno nema veliku umetničku vrednost.
  • The main attraction of Yaroslavl. Opened in the year 2010. Beautiful newly built on the new draft, but the old place. Violated some aspect ratio and is strongly noticeable. People with disabilities don't get into the temple without help. Very steep stairs. Tile cracks and falls apart. Spirituality is not felt, paintings on the walls yet. Nearby are several more churches, which surpass in beauty this temple. Walls cracked and peeling off from the outside.

  • Newly built with distorted proportions and deliberately modern mosaics. Sorry for not fully restored historic Temple project on this site.

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.
