A lovely spot at the confluence of two rivers in this charming Russian city which is more typical Russian than the bigger cities like St Petersburg and Moscow. A good visit for anyone in the area. We came on a Viking cruise.

Standing here, watching the huge Volga river and the storm clouds come up was an amazing feeling! I felt so small and insignificant but still amazed by nature's power and beauty.

This is a nice place where Kotorosl river flows into Volga. The best time to come here is summer evening when you can relax watching the nature from the upper embankment.

Water Fountains appear to be turned off in prep for winter so you miss the visual display. But the Bear is still visible. Walk along the embankment is bitter at this time of year. Should have just driven by.

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.
