  • Perhaps only here you can see the only less ancient buildings at the Bole of Yaroslavl. This holy gates, the lower tier belfry and Spaso-Preobrazhensky Cathedral (closed for visiting in winter) dating back to the 16th century. Everything else is later built, completion and adjustment until the 19th century. In General, wistfully. At every step you have to pay, returning to the cashier at the entrance, which is very inconvenient. The only thing that can be noted, this is an upgrade to the belfry, panoramic and visible to almost all places of interest. But the price for lifting 250 rub/person is expensive and not democratic to the State Museum reserve! For example, similar climbs on walls and observation towers of the Rostov Kremlin and Spaso-Yakovlevsky monastery 150 and 50 rubles. respectively, for a family visit more acceptable. Entrance 30 rubles. Entrance to the Exposition from 50 up to 150 USD. Single tickets $9.95 Entrance for tour group from 7 persons 80 Euro/person. All prices is in the Office. site. The whole complex is clearly requires competent reconstruction.

  • Scale built impressive place for weekend for the entire family. It is possible to walk along the paths of the Museum, a snack in the Café, meet with artisans. You can visit both ongoing exposure, such as nature (children love) and temporary (wax figures, dinosaurs).
