Statue located in the center of traffic circle. There’s no pedestrian crossing to the statue. This statue is printed on 1000 luble bill. So you can take picture with 1000 luble bill in front of this statue. You can leave car in the free parking lot near statue.

Monument to the founder of Yaroslavl, Yaroslav the Wise, was recently in the middle of Bogoyavleniya Square (next to Spasso-Preobrazhenskiy or Transfiguration of the Savior Monastery).
