Monument of Yaroslav the Wise (Mudry), Yaroslavl

(3.9/5 based on 130+ 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.

  • Is in the city centre, as its symbol and hallmark. Close does not come up, but not very impressive from a distance, and could be made larger.

  • The usual monument stands in the center of the square of the Epiphany. Inconspicuous such ordinary, even I would say. Nothing special is not represented.

  • The monument is located in the center of Yaroslavl, known to everyone thanks to banknote in 1000 USD. This is one of the symbols of the city, but surrounded by buildings and wires the monument looks not so majestically.
