Strelka Fountains, Yaroslavl

(4.5/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • Warm summer evenings when the weather is nice, but still in good company walk the arrow clearly. In Yaroslavl, and in the neighboring towns of the best fountains than Arrow-No. Lights, music, excellent views of the Cathedral of the assumption. But! Shatajushhujusja tile need to somehow strengthen, and lawns would not poozelenit' and bigger flowers can be a great place for walks, even when not in season and fountains don't work.

  • One of the most beautiful places in the city. It is better to visit in the summer and on a sunny day, to feel the strength and lightness at the same time this beautiful corner of Yaroslavl. The most beautiful place of the historic centre. A wonderful place for relaxation.

  • These fountains are located in the main city park, together with it, places that definitely must see if you're over there. I highly recommend you spend a summer's day, with Volga hugging the sides the green of the Park and the Sun beaming of light the statue representing the 1000 years and over this ancient city.
