  • Monument to put local entrepreneurs to the 1000 anniversary of city. After all, the symbol of Yaroslavl-bear. It is the coat of arms and the legend about the founding of the city. Attractive monument. Stands near the Museum at Epiphany square. Next to the monument always many tourists. Children climb right on bear to be photographed. Therefore, to make a beautiful picture, have to wait for a convenient moment. The monument is podzvuchka-every hour he roars. Loud and scary.
