Going out & Sights

Author: marumu (on 06 Sep 2015)
Yaroslavl is a big town, so probably you'll prefer public transport to walking to move around the city. However, it's better to walk around the old historical center.
 
Svobody street goes from the main railway station to the centrum, and finishes between the Red square and Spassky monastery, which are about 1 kilometer apart. If you walk another 700 meters straight ahead, you'll come on the embankment of Volga river, there are many interesting old houses, churches and museums.
