I really like being here, you got a feel of the ancient history, and you can just stroll or explore all the museums. A little tip: check out the pretty watercolor postcards in the souvenir shop - probably, the best light-weight keepsake for travelers!

Spaso-Preobrazhensky Museum preserve is located in the very historical centure of Yaroslavl, one of the cities of the Gold Ring of Russia. The Museum complex is located within ancient walls on the bank of the river. It's a must to climb the bell tower of the historical complex to see the beauty of the city and many churches, cathedrals and... More

Really nice place if the weather is good, can get a good view of the city from the bell tower and there is a café to grab a beer, or a kvas. For us the best part was the period costumes you could rent for only 150 rubles. We got some really good photos looking like Ivan the Terrible!

We went on a day when there was no distractions from the sad fact that incarcerated in a lonely mad life on the premises is a poor bear. There's no escaping the fact, as there are pictures of him , looking quite distressed proudly displayed outside his solitary confinement cell within the walls of this otherwise beautiful place. Pay extra... More

We were fortunate - it was the festival of bell ringing on the day we were there. We watched it in action in the tower, I will never forger the performance. Our guide explained all the different buildings. There are several museums with the kremlin walls. Each has a small admission fee. Be sure to climb the watch tower for... More

It is called Spaso preobrazenskiy monastery or Yaroslavl kremlin. You need buy ticket for entering only or for various packages - for example, entering museums, climbing bell tower, etc. There are museums inside - doors are so thick and heavy, go and see book museum. You can see Yaroslavl city, riverside beach, bear decorations on tips of roofs, and feel... More

I visited the museum of Yaroslavl history and was very impressed. The collection is rich and excellent. Worth seeing. You can really feel the history of the place.

There are several museums with the kremlin walls. Each has a small admission fee and well worthwhile. Buy the tickets (with cash ONLY) at the window just inside the large gate. The natural history museum is well done, with details about the area. The kids really enjoyed it too. The insect collection is large and well displayed. The treasuries exhibit... More

Actually the Golden Ring of Russia consists of several towns in the central part near by Moscow (100 - 250 km from Moscow). Those are the former capitals of Russian principalities from XI throughout XVII centuries. Higly recommended attraction for historical place and original architecture lovers. Unfortunately I've been just to Sergiev Posad, Yaroslavl, Rostov (there are some more -... More
