  • For a family of 3 persons for the entrance gave 1200r. And then it turns out that in each separate museum complex to photograph is worth more $4.95 What's behind the Bedlam? And so you get tired from the constant hint: dressed undressed when the input/output (November did) still must climb over the purse to give these unfortunate $4.95 And God forbid poshurshish' fantikom from candy (caramel) for the child immediately and begin to teach grandmother asks questions of life. And in the Treasury so generally prohibited photographing, allegedly for security reasons (serious? if you wish everyone out there a fifth grader would withdraw its gopro and no one would notice). The exhibits themselves claims, although replicas, for example, require at least repair. View from the belfry.

  • It is impossible to visit Yaroslavl and not visit the Museum (Spaso-Preobrazhensky Monastery). The extensive area, interesting exhibitions, special attention should be paid to visit the belfry with a beautiful view of the historical part of the city. The only minus the lack of guides and audio, that in Yaroslavl, why the rule:(

  • Driving by car from Plyos, stopped in this place to get an initial impression of Yaroslavl. The place is beautiful, with a Bell Tower can be seen the whole city with surroundings, near beautiful place called arrow. The complex offers a very nice gift shop, which contains a great variety of souvenirs made by local artisans. With empty hands leave not real! There are souvenirs for all tastes and price category. We have not stood and painted wooden Santa clauses, incidentally exhibited only here painted master, which paints crafts commissioned by the wife of Dmitry Anatolievich.
