  • Unfortunately as he growls. And so just cute cool Teddy bear. Only in some totally unknown site.

  • In the center of the symbol of the city of Yaroslavl-bear. All come to him, foot rub, photographed, make wishes, and he suddenly begins growling. Don't be intimidated-growls a few seconds at the beginning of each hour. Night rests and other sleep gives. Why growls? Probably recalls that ancestors worshipped pagan yaroslavtsev totems. And stone, on which sits the bear. The inscription on the stone: the symbol of Russia, the legend of Yaroslavl. Come listen and look.

  • The monument is located near the interactive museum "Residence Madams Main Carnival" (Revolutionary directions, 14A). As far as we understand, the monument erected to replace live Dipper Mashke. Now the monument of spunk for good luck nose and paws.
