    Positioned as the Kremlin, the monastery. At the time of the visit, conducted extensive repairs, and around Yaroslavl. Entrance 40 rubles, a comprehensive 700. Bednovaty exposure, though there are also curious. Naturally, the most-most-Bell Tower. The people crowd, so there fells zapasaemsja patience. In the end, if he came to visit, we should, all the same story. If you don't hit, don't get discouraged, especially nothing is lost.

    A good museum complex with many different exhibitions. The most interesting is the belfry! A little awkward to climb there, given the large flow of tourists, but the views from there offer chic.

    Frequent this place called Yaroslavl the Kremlin, but in fact this is the monastery, Yaroslavsky, the Kremlin has not survived and was in a different place, closer to the arrow, where now the new assumption Cathedral. Place points of interest, here is what to look at. If only external examination need an hour, if you climb on the walls, a tower, go to the churches, go to the Dipper, you can pass a few hours. On the territory of souvenir shops with a good choice. By the way, I recommend you try Yaroslavsky chocolate. Expensive, but delicious.
