We have breakfast in a restaurant with a real Russian stove. Let's eat porridge with chicken and mushrooms, croissant with tambov ham, buckwheat porridge with baked tomatoes.
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.
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.
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.
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.
What a curious ride awaits us! Are you ready? We visit the railway, which is a part of "Russian Railways", whose employees are children. The length of the railway is 5.7 km. We will ride with a breeze on a diesel locomotive TU7A from the station "Pioneer" to the station "Yakovlevskaya" and back. Important: Up-to-date information on the operation of the children's railway as well as the train timetable can be found [here](https://vk.com/ydzdrzd).
Before leaving Yaroslavl, let's visit Alyosha Popovich and his wife Lyubava Yaroslavskaya. We shall get acquainted with horse Julia and the curious descendant of the Snake Gorynych, we shall learn secrets of a life in Ancient Russia, we shall touch the ancient weapon and even we shall make our own protection. Important: the museum-theater does not work on Mondays.
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.
Admire the sunset in a cafe-bar on the bank of the Volga. There is a children's corner for little guests. We recommend to pay attention to Kerch herring, borsch with pampushki, burger with White Sea cod.
