4.5/5 based on 440+ 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.

  • Beautiful place especially at evenings and when fountains work! Nice views to Volga river. Love it so much! 
  • Superb looks with the Volga embankment. In the summertime, special charm attached fountains. It's nice to take a walk. sit on benches and admire the Volga

  • Beautifully! Very nice! You understand that you are in Russia. But deserted. Lacking any zest.
