  • Of course, Volga-dominant city. Therefore, a promenade on its high bank is the best place for a stroll. Once predstavish myself that way that commits the great river from its source to the Caspian Sea to the Russian expanses, reverence and you are inspired to the motherland, and the great Russian cities, located on the banks of the river.

  • The great Russian River Volga-still not very wide in Yaroslavl, but already you can feel its power. You can walk around water, and on top of the embankment. Straight track, there are benches for rest. Large trees give excellent thee, and across the street you will find a number of interesting museums, such as the unique Museum of irons.
