Cathedral of the Assumption, Yaroslavl

4.4
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.

  • The current assumption Cathedral appeared recently to the 1000 anniversary of Yaroslavl. The predecessor of the new assumption Cathedral was blown up in Soviet times. New building evokes mixed emotions. On the one hand, it impresses with its size. But, on the other hand, new temples of this image there are many in Russia, it is not original. Its architecture seems alien in a city like Moscow, where the Church has its own architectural style. You can argue about it. Had to build another and Bell Tower, but she too many it seems inappropriate for their size.

  • The new Cathedral, appeared only thanks to Russian entrepreneur Viktor Ivanovich Tyryshkinu. Quite a young man, Colonel in reserve, engineer, from a family of teachers, engaged in the construction business. And a large part of the profits to build new and spends the reconstruction of destroyed temples. Not only, but also in Yaroslavl in pereslavl-Zalessky, Kostroma, sponsored the publication of books about King Stanisław's. Amazing destiny of man. Yet Bell can still build. The bells are on the ground. The dome of the Cathedral inside was not painted, and it seemed to me that they are not exactly commensurate with the scale of the Cathedral (i.e. everything outside and inside the vaults too cylindrical). Great location-near Volga meets Kotoroslju.

  • Recommend starting with this Cathedral familiarity with Yaroslavl. The Cathedral is located on the seafront, near from the eternal flame and the Park. In the evening, when the include lights, very nice!

  • Great views, awesome bells history! Note that upstairs is very narrow so be careful
  • Liked the architecture of the belfry. and, of course, impressed with the weight of the bells-2000 tons, 1000 pounds. the good thing is that the Museum was organized by Kremlin in Rostov before the Bolshevik coup, so none of the Bell was not dropped on the ground. the view from here is better than from the observation deck.

  • The Bell stand huge bells. The biggest-Sysoy. They call everyday at 8 am and 16:45 for 15 minutes. Ringing can be ordered, but Bell come to a certain time. Must be at least three ringers. Only on Sysoe work, because Bell 30 tons. Sysoy is used only in the big jingle.
