Yaroslavl Architectural Historical and Art Museum Preserve features approximately 300,000 pieces, including paintings, ornamental needlework, manuscripts from the 13th to the 15th centuries, and folk and religious art. Alexander S. Petrovsky, a professor of natural history, founded the museum in 1865. The museum's collection is housed in a monastery complex--a monument of 16th- and 17th-century architecture. See the manuscript of "The Tale of Igor's Campaign," a 12th-century epic poem discovered in the monastery in the 18 century. Inside the complex, you can also visit the museum dedicated to the first woman astronaut, Valentina Tereshkova.

  • Remarkable architectural monument of the Russian people. Cathedrals and Bell Tower are fine. You can climb the Bell Tower observation deck, offering breathtaking views of the city, the Park and the confluence of the river Kotorosl in Volga. Very interesting to see the gilded crosses on domes of cathedrals from above! Even the angle for photographers.

  • Spend here more than three hours, were on an excursion and yourself have gone through almost all expositions. A place that breathes history. Beautiful views from the Bell Tower, a wonderful exhibition of books and household items 12-19 centuries. Pleased birchbark decals with children's scrawls (notebooks), a 12-century love letter is something incredible. The surviving monastic books with illustrations, the exhibition devoted to the Word tale, Maille, battlegarb, even neotrestavrirovannyh frescos Spaso-preobrazhenskiy temple there is some poetry and feeling pervorodnosti. I hope the Church will not insist on returning to their enjoyment of these buildings and areas, and museums, and the reserve will remain accessible to all visitors. Incidentally noticed that many mesivšee residents go to the current Chapel, located on the territory of the reserve. I almost forgot to write about wonderful bear Masha, who lives here 20 years. So pretty with sad eyes.
