We saw this lovely city on our conducted tour around the Golden Ring, and we were here for one night and half a day. In my opinion, the BEST thing, by far, in Yaroslavl was the riverside walk along the Volga River. One of the best riverbank walks I have experienced, anywhere in the world. The river looks great, and there are some very interesting churches on the walk, apart from some other beautiful buildings. Very very photogenic. Even in bad weather! If it is a nice sunny day, you could not ask for more! Remember, this city is over a thousand years old, our guide regaled us with plenty of stories of the past. It is the biggest city between Moscow and the Arctic.

The Volga river banking is a long area, perfect both for Summer and Winter walks. From here you can enjoy the beautiful panorama of the river and the other side of the city, also this path allows you to see several major sights of Yaroslavl: the Yaroslval Art Museum, the Musical Museum, the Yaroslavl History Museum and the Uspensky cathedral.

The main bridge across Volga can be spotted here, as well as old architecture – various old houses and estates are located along the riverwalk. At several points you can have a rest at the pavilions or enjoy a meal at one of the restaurants and cafes.

If you're having a river tour, then this is the place, where you'll start exploring the city. From here you can get fast to the city centre with its monasteries, old churches and other sights. At the very end of the riverwalk you'll find the musical fountains and the monument devoted to the 1000 years of Yaroslavl.

I like this place. Been visiting Yaroslavl' numerous times during last forty years and always try to come here. Not a lot has changed around - same stunning views on the Volga river, same charming trademark pavillion, same gorgeous trees and same sidewalks in need of repair, scarce kiosks with souvenirs and almost total lack of places to sit down and have a cup of tea or coffee.
This time one of us stepped onto a pile of dung left by some enormous dog (hopefully not a man). Dear residents of Yroslavl', please clean up after your pets - their poo's stench is remarkable! Thanks God that day was rainy and there were many pools around. (But still - he reeked all hell for quite some time.)

A lovely proper Russian city of approximately 600,000 people which is ideal for a visitor to see hoe Real Russians live. Not too touristy.

The place to spend a nice evening with a bottle of wine, great company and a marvelous Volga view. Feel yourself like the Yaroslav Mudriy but a 1000 years in the future

,I strolled just a short section of this embankment promenade, probably the prettiest part. This section overlooked the Yaroslavl Millennium Park with its fountains and Yaroslavl Millennium Monument and was in the vicinity of the Assumption Church. Along this stretch a white columnar folly looking like a small Greek Temple was an obvious sight. Couples liked to attach locks on the black wrought iron fence that surrounded it as a show of their love for each other. Many of the locks have inscriptions making this an interesting stop. At this point on the walkway, a good view of the many green domes of the St. John Church can be seen and makes for a good photo with the Yaroslavl Millennium Monument in the foreground. Some vendors have kiosks with souvenirs for sale along here. The area is attractive with several floral beds filled with colorful seasonal annuals; one even had a design of Yaroslavl's symbol, the brown bear in it. The walkway at this point was treed, shady, with nice views either to the park and the Assumption Church, over to the spit and the Church of St. John, or along the Volga River with its industrial section evident in the distance. The evenly paved walkway was wide so dodging others on it was not an issue. I enjoyed my short time on the Yaroslavl promenade and the sights seen from several vantage points.

This medium sized city is full of culture, history and historic sites. I only visited the older, touristy part of the city and it was very nice and felt very safe. I particularly enjoyed the area referred to as the Embankment. Beautiful church, pretty park grounds, very nice views, war memorials and other attractions make it great for a walk-- whether or not the actual historical facts are of interest. The upper and lower levels are both spacious and well landscaped. I'd recommend starting in the upper area and after an hour or so make the decision to descend a long staircase to be closer to the river. A picnic and 2 hours of strolling would make a great outing on a nice day.

We visited Yaroslavl during a Volga River cruise. It's a fascinating, quite large, regional centre and made an interesting contrast to Moscow or Saint Petersburg. The well organised excursion included visit to the embankment, to churches and to a restored mansion where we were treated to a concert.

The viewpoint above the confluence of the Kotorosl and Volga rivers is well worth a visit for the views of the Volga and the riverside park. Yaroslavl also has some other attractions, notably the St Elijah Church.
