The city of Yaroslavl, located at the confluence of the Volga and the small river Kotorosl, is the pearl of the Golden Ring. We deliberately included in the program a basic sightseeing tour of the city with a visit to the museum reserve on the territory of the monastery Spaso-Preobrazhensky, while most of the excursions were taken out as additional ones to allow your clients to form their own tour from the options offered.
This tour is most logical to offer as an extension of any of our Moscow programs "Eclectic Moscow", "Literary Moscow", "Walking Moscow" with a transfer by high-speed train from Moscow to Yaroslavl.
Yaroslavl is a town of unsurpassed beauty. Everywhere is The Volga, and everywhere in history. The city is over 1000 years old and was founded by Yaroslav, the son of Russia’s first Christian grand prince Vladimir the Great. Yaroslav landed here in 1010 to suppress a hostile pagan tribe that raided passing merchants.
