  • Passed by and didn't even know that in time the bear begins to Growl. Very funny and cool Ute

  • An excellent and somewhat interesting monument Bear-symbol of Yaroslavl. Bear sculpture itself was very good. Bear stuck in a beautiful pose. You can take a couple of good photos with a bear. The children really enjoy, and maybe scare the growl of a bear. (Growls at the beginning of each hour). Well, as usual, for good luck, you can rub the paw, while somebody pulls out and up to the nose.
