Cathedral of the Assumption, Yaroslavl

(3.9/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Cathedral of the Assumption and many more Yaroslavl attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Yaroslavl vacation generator.

  • Being in this place surprised human hatred for anything. The newly built church. Completely prichichno restored. But the horror that demolished! How much money and effort have been made!

  • Beautiful, large Cathedral. Inside light and plenty of space. Conveniently located near the embankment of the Volga River and other attractions.

  • Good view of Strelka Park
  • Good view
  • Beautiful... All signs are in Russian and in English... small shops where the prices are reasonable. This is a must visit place.

  • Worst Temple. The WORST! Built not so long ago, and he's already all falling apart, both inside and outside. Temple of soulless. Empty. Built in favor of the tourist money. And it is so. Want spirituality? Visit any other. Avoid side this tourist attraction.

  • Historical place satisfied. Vkrnuli city if not the Kremlin, but the temple. But .... Beautiful new of course, but why no modern building ramps for disabled people? Who is not as they search for themselves in the sanctuary. And the stairs oh what cool.
