Strelka Fountains, Yaroslavl

4.5
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.

Where to stay in Yaroslavl

Places to stay in Yaroslavl might not be as numerous as in some other Russian cities, but you can still find a good selection of accommodation to satisfy a range of tastes and budgets. The city is home to several large hotels, ranging from the luxurious, with on-site spas and swimming pools, to more modest economy options. A handful of small, charming boutique hotels and bed and breakfasts offer more intimate lodging. Fully equipped apartments and budget hostels round out the selection. Because accommodation in Yaroslavl is not particularly plentiful, it's always wise to make reservations ahead of time.
