Monument Tourist Spot
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. Add Monument of Yaroslav the Wise (Mudry) and other attractions to your Yaroslavl trip itinerary using our Yaroslavl tour planner.

  • 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.
