Monument of Yaroslav the Wise (Mudry), Yaroslavl
(3.9/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Everything would have been cool, if not for the trolleybus wires. Photograph the monument difficult without them.
