Monument of Yaroslav the Wise (Mudry), Yaroslavl

4.2
Visit Monument of Yaroslav the Wise (Mudry) and see city's namesake. Yaroslav the Wise was a great medieval Russian ruler, as well as the founder of the city. According to legend, he used his halberd to kill a bear on the spot of the current Yaroslavl kremlin, and that's how the city got its coat of arms--a bear with a halberd--which you can see on the front of the monument. As the city's founder and protector, Yaroslav is depicted holding a sword and one of the kremlin towers. There are many good angles from which to take a photo; however, because it's on an isle in the middle of a busy traffic circle, you can't get very close to it. Plan your visit to Monument of Yaroslav the Wise (Mudry) and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Yaroslavl road trip website .

It stands on a high pedestal around him constantly ride car, but you can always catch the moment to photograph. The monument was erected in memory of the founding Prince of the city of Yaroslavl. The monument faces face to entering the city centre with the Moscow direction.

  • A good monument but not a very good place. Stands in the center of the square with a very busy road, closed, Poles, wires, machines. Although it is possible to find good angles on the background of Cathedral and monastery.

  • First theater 🎭 in Ussr.
  • A monument to the founder of the city of Yaroslavl. Yaroslav the Wise is a symbol of the city and a must place to visit.He is depicted on the banknote of 1000 rubles
  • Correctly, the monument is almost inaccessible for direct contact with people. After reading how many people are outraged that the monument is not reached, I believe that it is thanks to its location it (Memorial) is still intact and unharmed. Why treat him? In order to see enough places around the square.

  • Good, but the whole monument is enveloped. Normal type no.
