Церковь Ильи Пророка

Churches


We go on a tour of a city with more than a thousand years of history. The first stop is at one of the most recognizable churches of Yaroslavl. Surprisingly, the Temple of Elijah the Prophet managed to preserve not only its original appearance, but also the rich interior decoration with an iconostasis in the Baroque style, the royal gates and unique ancient icons.

Художественный музей

Art Museums


We move to "the largest museum of arts in the Russian province", the collection of which includes more than 80,000 works. Please, pay attention to the exhibition "LEGO-world of Harry Potter", valid until November 1, 2020. Careful: the time of stay in the museum can increase greatly. Or parents risk continuing to get acquainted with Yaroslavl without children. Important: the museum is closed on Mondays.

Спасо-Преображенский монастырь

Monasteries


Do you remember "The Word of Igor's Campaign"? Well, the only surviving copy of the monument of Old Russian literature was found in the library of the Spaso-Preobrazhensky monastery in the late XVIII century. The main temple of the monastery, the Savior Transfiguration Cathedral, was rebuilt in the XVI century after a major fire. Its appearance is laconic, reserved and a little strict. Maybe that's why Ivan the Terrible loved to be here so much.

Baget Pashtet I Zheltyy Pled

It's time for dinner at a cozy family café with an atmospheric name. Menu hits: assorted pâtés, mussels in "Roquefort" sauce, dumplings of pike.

Important: the museum-theater does not work on Mondays.

Pozharnaya Kalancha

We're already in Uglich. Before going to dinner, we'll stop at a two-story mansion with a mezzanine and a classic portico. If it wasn't for the fire tower in the background, it would be extremely difficult to believe that a fire brigade was and still is housed here.
