Strelka Fountains, Yaroslavl
(4.5/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Join the locals and visitors in taking a break from busy city life at Strelka Fountains. The water spouting from the fountain is accompanied by a display of colors and pleasant music. The fountain is one of the highlights of the park located at the confluence of the Volga and Kotorosl in the place where, according to legend, the history of the city of Yaroslavl began more than a millennium ago. This is where Prince Yaroslav the Wise slew a bear before he founded the city. Close to the fountain, you can see the city's coat of arms depicting a bear with a halberd formed out of a flower arrangement in one of the park's large flower beds. A visit to Strelka Fountains represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Yaroslavl itinerary builder to plot your vacation.

  • Fountains on the arrow, something fascinating. Gorgeous huge area, water from all sides, a wonderful place to relax. I don't know how the day, probably in the summer is hot, no roofs and no shadow! Basically walk with her husband in the evening, relax from routine work.

  • Arrow is one of the favorite destinations for walks in the summer evening. Water around (the Volga flows Kotorosl River) and water sprinkling in the middle of several fountains. You can podryzgat'sja in one of them, or get a dose of freshness from the wind passing by. No shadow, since there are no trees and canopies. With toilets the same trouble.
