  • Symbol of Yaroslavl-bear. Bears in this town a lot, came across it by accident and got excellent photo and good mood. Children bear a very likable.

  • Recommend necessarily photographed about this monument and rub the bear paw (it is believed that it will bring happiness)!

  • The monument itself is something special does not represent, but when growls, for the first time entirely unclear what this loud sound and where he goes, children may not like. And adults begin to look around. But an interesting idea!
