  • Temple is located at a distance from the Center, you need to take a taxi, closed in winter, you can only bypass around, sorry, but even outside the Temple requires restoration-shattered tiles, otkoloty bricks. The temple itself is located in the industrial zone, next to nothing. Looks good with trains from afar. Probably in the summer, the picture will be better.

  • Beauty against the blue sky. Yes, and in any weather. I think. So many domes, such greatness. Before this attractions worth, because the image of this temple is the thousand banknote. A taxi from the centre 150 rub. The temple is closed, but you can be photographed on his background and travel to the Centre or to the promenade.

  • St. John the Baptist Church or Церковь Иоанна Предтечи is a must visit place in Yaroslavl Russia. The church is featured on the 1000-ruble banknote. Very beautiful, next to Volga River
  • Very beautiful temple. The largest in Yaroslavl. Depicted on the "walking" money banknote RF-1000 rubles. Built at the end of the 17th century as a result of competition the richest districts, it built Sloboda, engaged in the manufacture and sale of leather. For the first time applied the bricks in different shapes, round, and others. Behind the temple is located some powerhouse, which "backs" the temple grounds and horribly spoil the look. The temple is in need of reconstruction, and small time vandalism it slowly "erode".
