Cathedral of the Assumption, Yaroslavl

4.0
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. A visit to Cathedral of the Assumption represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Yaroslavl trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • The initial Cathedral was made from wood in 1215 but burned down 200 years later. On the same spot it was rebuild in the 16th. century but distroyed again by the Soviets in the 20th century. Finaly it...  more »
  • Frankly speaking, even though the Cathedral and 18 century, but "recovery on the new draft" made him a bit pompous and unwieldy, and like soulless ... Church of Elijah the Prophet, or St. John the Baptist Church is much heartier, touching them, as if to touch history.

  • The Cathedral is a place of worship still active. Inside, you attractive men and women who come, sometimes with their children, pray, Kiss the icons, burn candles or discuss with the priest. The ambiance of the place is strange, both collected and silent, and at the same time always in movement, visitors moving from one place to another of the Cathedral as following a course that is clean. Even if it is a recent (2004) and not necessarily in line with the previous version, I find that the Interior is successful between the count of (completely white) walls and the richness of the iconostasis in line with the style of the churches of the 17th century. A fine example of living don't miss Cathedral.

  • 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.
