The 'Strelka' (an arrow) is the name of the place where two rivers meet. So it is the mouth of the river Kotorosl where it meets the fab Volga.There is a beautiful park now with a monument to the city millenium jubilee and the location of music fountains. They are really a spectacular sight and make as great impression on... More

Very nice, relaxing place! The fountains were quite relaxing and the music played was nice, just a little loud in some places so pick your bench carefully.

When on a cruise from Moscu to S. Petersburg, we had a stop at this place. The park is really nice, but we arrived here to early and the fountains where still not working, so we missed them

This park is located on a spit between the Volga River at its confluence with Kotorosl River. We viewed this park from an elevated observation point near the newly built Church of the Assumption. Although there is a stairway down to the park, we did not walk through the park. There are flower beds, benches and fountains which lead to... More

It's a wide park which located in junction of the two river Bolga and Kotorosl. From Uspenskiy sobor, you can approach to this observation point and park area. Vladimir city has more than 1000 years history. You can see big cargo ships and passenger ships on Volga river. Bear is the symbol of this city.

Save yourself the walk round the formal garden and view the entire thing from an elevated position (i.e. the grounds to the rear of the Assumption Cathedral). At least from here you can see the Russian bear design in the flower border and the fountain itself. Nothing much else to see really.

Make sure to venture here by nightfall when the fountains squirt to the tones of music being played, accompanied by coloured lights. It's really nice to just sit down, watch and listen for a while.

They had emptied the fountains by the time I got there on October 6, but the park surrounding them was outstanding. It is at the junction of the River Kotorosi and the Volga. It has a new, but very impressive monument and a strikingly nice position.

I was surprised to see Strelka Fountains listed as an attraction and to even have reviews. This is a pretty basic fountain in a paved and gentrified area near the embankment. I’ve seen better fountains in shopping malls. It is surrounded by pathways and some shrubs and flowers. No big deal. You’ll come to it naturally and pass it just... More

Great park, gardens, fountains ... and local history! The Strelka is founded on the site where Prince Yaroslavl the Wise allegedly vaniquished a sacred bear in 1010; the prince was exploring the area with the intention of forming a settlement; the unhappy locals set the bear on him to discourage him! It didn't work .... the prince ... err., 'disposed'... More
