So that the impressions of the tour to Yaroslavl for 2 days do not turn into a chaotic kaleidoscope, it is worth evenly distributing the number of attractions and not running through all the main objects on the first day. Usually, travelers on the first day visit the top sites in the historic city center.

Volzhskaya embankment

During summer navigation, pleasure boats leave from the River Station on the Volzhskaya Embankment - the evening city looks even more impressive from the water.

Pervomaisky Boulevard

The boulevard was a favorite walking area of ​​the townspeople back in the 19th century. At the beginning of the 20th century, a brass band played here on summer evenings. Now the long alley, which Yaroslavl youth calls "Broadway", is a place for evening meetings and leisurely walks.

Kirov Street
